The situation with the electricity supply in Ukraine remains difficult. About 50% of the critical energy infrastructure remains damaged. One of the most vital tasks is to continue supplying generators for medical institutions, where doctors often work by the light of lanterns.
The goal is to raise $50,000 and purchase cold-weather supplies for field hospitals.
- Mobile field hospitals and "stabilization points" are the healthcare facilities closest to the front lines. Wounded soldiers and civilians are brought there to be given urgent treatment and to be stabilized for further transit to larger hospitals.
- A reliable electricity supply is essential to operating these facilities, but they can no longer rely on the grid due to Russian attacks on infrastructure. Therefore, portable generators are required. These are typically 5-8kW units that cost approximately $2,000-$3,000 in Europe.
- Once battlefield wounds are treated in the field, hypothermia is a major risk. Therefore, other means of keeping the patients warm are also needed: thermal blankets, sleeping bags, heaters, etc.
Yuri Kubrushko, Leleka's Ukraine Project Coordinator, is in constant touch with front-line medics and doctors at field hospitals. Due to the intensity of the fighting, cold temperatures, and the damage to infrastructure, he is seeing extremely high demand. "The most requested items right now are generators, thermal blankets, sleeping bags, and other gear to help deal with the cold and prevent hypothermia in patients," says Yuri. Leleka buys this equipment using funds raised from the public and delivers them directly to front-line units and hospitals, free of charge, based on availability and need.
This event is a unique chance to emphasize the daily life of Ukrainians who are forced to spend most of their time in dark bomb shelters through an immersive theater experience.
The event’s language is English. We invite everyone in the Bay Area and beyond - you will enjoy this if you have no connection to Ukraine. An interest in art, food, or music is enough.
Ukrainian artists from all over the country come to San Francisco to raise funds for generators needed at mobile hospitals in Ukraine.
You’ll get an exclusive opportunity to explore art as a part of an exhibition, hear the stories behind every piece that interests you from the artists themself and purchase your favorite paintings during the live auction.
30% of every piece of art sold at the event will be donated to Leleka Foundation and Volia Fund to provide Ukrainian mobile hospitals with critical equipment, including power generators so that they can continue saving lives.

is an Icarus resident DJ who has been playing for years. Ilya Polyakov aka DJ MOSF3T got infected by DJing and electronic music production after his first trip to Burning Man in 2007. The participatory nature of the burner community made this creative outlet a no-brainer, electronic music was an inseparable part of Ilya’s life already. Simply experiencing electronic music was no longer enough – it must be created, controlled, molded. Seeing Jeff MIlls back at the old Limelight in NYC, experiencing Shpongle under the stars of the North California mountains had an almost religious effect. Growing up in the club scene of 1990s NYC, moving through Toronto in the middle of the DnB peak, and ending up at early 2000 psy-trance parties of the Bay Area, the influences reach far and wide. Sprinkle on decades of professional work in robotics and building art for fun, and you get a diverse tapestry of sound shaped by technology and art. His music style is Playa Tech, Deep Tech, Techno.
