After coordination with Kyiv's Mayor Vitali Klitschko, Krezner set out to obtain products that the city's residents would need.
The initiative set out to help elderly residents, those who are ill and single-parent families, who making up about three million residents in need.
Most of these people are currently in shelters and are either too afraid to leave or unable to buy essentials.
Within less than one day, Krezner got together close to one million dollars worth of donations from Israeli companies and business men, amongst them the well-known high-tech company Playtika.
Krezner himself donated about half a million dollars out of pocket.
Refali Yochai, Field Manager of "City Capital Group", and more of Krezner's partners organized all the necessary supplies, including diapers, food, and personalized prescriptions. The initiative is continuing to prosper as many Israelis in Ukraine show readiness to donate to the cause.
