Kirkland-based nonprofit has sent over 14,000 pounds of humanitarian aid to Ukraine

The founder of the nonprofit decided he wanted to give back after beating stage 3 brain cancer. When Russia invaded Ukraine, he turned his efforts to helping.

KIRKLAND, Wash. – Kirkland-based iMiracle project has so far helped more than 40,000 Ukrainians and delivered £14,000 in humanitarian aid since Russia incited war in the country earlier this year.

Founder Sergey Bagdasarov said that after beating stage 3 brain cancer, he wanted to create something to give back to the world. His organization was initially focused on helping children through sports until February 2022, when Russia invaded.

By March 2022, Bagadasarov shifted his focus to Ukraine relief efforts.

“I am Armenian and have family in Ukraine and Russia,” he said.

His heart led the way as he rallied community support to send financial aid and medical supplies more than 5,000 miles away.

Helping refugees cross the border in Poland and Romania is phase one.

“The key to our efforts is working with vetted individuals and organizations in Ukraine so we know our impact,” says Bagdasarov.

With just a few dedicated volunteers, the iMiracle Project has made a significant impact over the past year. More than 220 volunteers used financial donations worth more than $850,000 to facilitate the transportation of medical supplies to hospitals and orphanages in Ukraine.

Current projects also include educating Ukrainian youth out of school and providing food for elderly Ukrainians.

“We have a family on the ground in Ukraine who make sure the elderly are fed,” says Bagdasarov.

The Subbotin family buys groceries and cares for seniors in need, and the iMiracle Project has supported this effort from afar.

“It is our relationships with people like this that allow us to make a direct impact on the lives of thousands of people in Ukraine,” says Bagdasarov.

As the holidays draw closer, iMiracle Project hopes the community will continue to support them so they can provide more relief in the coming winter months. Bagdasarov said the community has contributed a lot and the financial support is increasingly helpful with transportation costs.

“It can be really difficult to get these supplies around the world, so donations will help cover the huge shipping costs and we can get aid to those who need it,” he said. desperately needed in Ukraine.”
