The Ukraine Equestrian Federation Charity Foundation (UEF-CF) has seen donations plummet as the rest of the world begins feeling the economic effects of the ongoing Ukraine conflict. The charity estimates that donations are averaging just over $1,000 a week, though it takes nearly $29,000 a week to cover the aid requested from about 300 stables.
The hay shortage is of particular concern. Many hay fields are riddled with landmines, making the harvesting of hay impossible. The shortage is reaching desperate proportions.
The average cost to get feed transported to and distributed in the Ukraine is about $1,500. In June, the charity produced its own specially designed compound feed to help offset some of the costs of bringing in feed from outside areas.
More than 800 tons of feed and shavings had been delivered to 162 stables and clubs in Ukraine as of June 1, including the occupied areas.
