As you read this article, Ukrainian cities are on fire, the citizens who could not escape seeking shelter from airstrikes, and any moments of silence are abruptly cut off by sirens signaling that attacks are imminent. Many lives are lost. Houses turn into ruins. However, many still wonder if they can help Ukraine despite all this.
How can I help Ukraine?
Most IT companies get this question very often. The answer is simple: “Keep believing in Ukraine.” Over the past years, a lot of global companies have grown, relying on talents of Ukrainian developers. Many practical, world-famous products were created by the hands and minds of our professionals—for example, such projects as GitLab, Petcube, Grammarly, and others.
Do not forget about Ukraine and its IT community
What can you do now? Try not to avoid cooperation with Ukrainian experts. Continue to work with already existing teams in Ukraine. Or you can open a new R&D center here. In this way, you will significantly support people and companies. Rest assured, in return, you will receive colossal gratitude and the hard work of Ukrainian software engineers.
Ukraine is on fire, but IT sector continues to work
February 24 will forever remain a terrible date in the hearts of all Ukrainians. Most companies were able to move all employees to the west of Ukraine to safer places or abroad. Almost every organization tries to keep in touch with their teams, doing everything they can to help them and their families. Therefore, you can always contact the company to get the necessary specialists for the project or get a quality code for your product.

Putin’s war aims to demoralize Ukrainians in all life spheres as quickly as possible and breaking our economy. They don’t know that although their missiles may destroy our cities, they will never destroy our desire to build a happy future. Ukrainians are not afraid to work, whether building renovations or coding for a project.
Today, under the threat of rocket attacks and constant sirens, our teams continue to perform work tasks, fulfilling all customer requirements. We are confident that this is an excellent investment in our bright future because we have it!
