This Forbes article covers Ukraine DAO trucks carrying humanitarian aid from across the border and within Ukraine:
One of the trucks went into the war zone to deliver food to people in the Kharkiv region. 8 Ukraine DAO trucks regularly carry humanitarian aid from across the border and 22 more are operating within Ukraine.
Their operations are managed by Ukraine DAO co-founder’s parents - you can learn more about their story in Drftng With Ukraine blog post, latest updates - “Day 48. Ukraine DAO Trucks Fleet” and “Day 76. Letter”.
Olena Shevchenko is a very talented logistics specialist who makes sure Ukraine DAO truck drivers know where they are going and get to the destination and back in the most efficient way. In spring, she lived in a room with 50 other women and their children after being internally displaced.
Alona’s dad Viktor Shevchenko makes sure that the trucks remain operational, that they have enough fuel and are properly maintained and repaired when needed.
Viktor and Olena Shevchenko are now in Western Ukraine helping to deliver humanitarian aid. This is critically important work because there’s a lot of humanitarian aid sent but not enough trucks/logistics people. Initially, they had 8 trucks there (with Ukraine DAO stickers on them🇺🇦), drivers for those and an accountant. They have been welcomed there and are getting a lot of help. We would never know the people helping them without our DAO’s community.

Ukraine DAO Trucks went into an actual warzone to deliver food to civilians in the Kharkiv region. This has literally never been done before by a DAO. The trucks are partially powered by ETH donations - huge thank you to @kmets_for being their big supporter.- tweet, 14 May 2022
