PIN-UP Foundation has helped over 15 thousand Ukrainians
Over the entire period of its activity, 15 thousand Ukrainians in more than 100 settlements of Ukraine have received assistance from PIN-UP Foundation.
Since the beginning of the full-scale war in Ukraine, Marina Ilyina, the owner of the PIN-UP brand, has founded PIN-UP Foundation, a charity foundation whose volunteers help Ukrainians on a daily basis. During the period of its activity, the foundation’s volunteers delivered food and medicines to communities in different regions of Ukraine, carried out a humanitarian mission to Kherson immediately after the explosion of the Kakhovka hydroelectric power station, and launched the LINE-UP humanitarian project to deliver essential goods to frontline cities. The Foundation helped to evacuate Ukrainians abroad, regularly provides various assistance to the city of Kharkiv, repairs and equips children’s centers, and installs stationary shelters in cities.
“PIN-UP Foundation continues to stand by Ukrainians and help them, because today, more than ever, we need to be united and strong. Every assistance, every action and word is our faith in the victory and future of Ukraine. The Foundation will continue its charitable mission,” Marina Ilina, President of PIN-UP Foundation, commented.
