Vector is part of an ongoing effort to support Ukraine providing essential supplies through product customer partnerships and financial donations. Additionally, a Ukrainian businessman made several financial donations to help offset the logistical costs of transporting medical donations.

The Ukrainian Embassy joined in the project of chartering the aircraft, due to the need to ship the products. The plane made several trips to deliver all the products.
Once in the country, the first priority for donations is the Ukraine military, the rest going to the locals Ukraine hospitals. Medical supplies include scarves, hand sanitizer, disinfectant wipes, nitrile gloves, masks and more.
