Since October 2022, Russia has been targeting critical civilian infrastructure in Ukraine with its missiles and drones. Attacks have degraded electricity generation and distribution, cutting off power and thereby heating, water treatment and Internet connectivity for millions of people. Rolling electricity blackouts lasting anywhere from several hours to days are making this brutal conflict even harsher. Even if the war was to stop tomorrow, damage to electricity power plants and distribution networks will persist.
One of the ways eQualitie is responding to this crises is by supplying small Internet service providers (ISP) with batteries to help them power their local (fibre optic) networks during electricity outages. We have already delivered a 7 tonne shipment in December and are now fundraising for a second delivery. We invite you to make a donation below to support this procurement. Our goal is to collect $25 000, which will help to buy 150-170 individual batteries to serve the needs of around 30 ISPs. All contribution matters!
100% of your donation will go towards the batteries’ purchase. We have an established logistics pipeline with DACPOL and customs importing and road freight assistance from DEPS. In Ukraine, the Ministry of Digital Transformation works with local ISPs on delivery, verification and reporting.
