Famous attorney-at-law and law professor Fabio Marazzi is now a Program Board member.

This strong team of experts share the same goal, which is to help the Ukrainians on the near-front territories and save them from the humanitarian catastrophe.

So far, the Saving Lives project has helped hundreds of people who live in communities right in the middle or close to the combat area. The geography and the scale of the aid continue to grow day-by-day.
