Since the beginning of the full-scale invasion of Russia, Ukrzaliznytsia has become a “lifeline” for millions of Ukrainians, and railroad workers have become heroes, thanks to which the evacuation, the delivery of humanitarian cargo, the implementation of rail diplomacy, and the fulfillment of many other tasks of the state have become possible.

Defending the country on their front, like workers in other areas of critical infrastructure, railroad workers are injured and, unfortunately, sacrifice the most important thing – their lives: more than 300 railroad workers died doing their job.

In order to support the families of the injured and dead railway workers, the Zalizna Rodyna Foundation (Rail Family Foundation) has been created, due to which everyone can help those who have lost relatives, housing or need rehabilitation.

Now you can easily join this support too: 100 UAH from the sale of each hoodie, sweatshirt or T-shirt that passengers buy at Zalizna Kramnytsa (Rail Store) at the Central Railway Station in Kyiv are donated to help the families of rail heroes.
