Our report of the 4rd Sauna Complex is readyIf there’s anything to comment on, this report proves a fundamental principle of production: for larger orders, the cost price of each complex will be slightly lower. Currently, we’ve been treating each sauna complex as a separate project, but in the long run, optimization is necessary. For example, some additional washing machines and dryers were purchased for the previous complex, which we could utilize this time. From an accounting perspective, this raises a minor theoretical question about which complex these machines should be allocated to, but ultimately, it’s just a matter of paperwork. Similarly, VAT refunds play a crucial role in the creation of each subsequent complex. Finally, we must always express our gratitude to the sponsors mentioned in our report. Last Sunday, our team visited Alatskivi and met with the local Saunas For Ukraine support team. Once again, I received confirmation that with people like them, mountains can be moved. A deep bow. Another profound bow goes to our team, who works voluntarily.The production of the 5th complex is already on the way.

A somewhat unexpected greeting came from our first saunaKarpatska Sich is fighting, and our sauna is fighting alongside them. The pictures show our good friend from Latvia, Juris Jurašs, who has been fighting in Ukraine. Now he sits at the door of the sauna and confirms that all the complex's machines are in use: the sauna, the laundry, and the support vehicle. Thus, this complex has endured for a year and a half now. Feedback is good. This message brought more joy than I would have expected. Good comrades with whom we started in the fall of 2022, thank you! This has not been in vain!Read more
Our fundraising for the 5th sauna is underwayLet's remember that for the 5th sauna complex for Saunas For Ukraine, the Rotary Club Tallinn Global has joined us. At their initiative, an event took place at Fotografiska. As a result of this event, we have already collected 6592 euros. If all Rotary Clubs join in with this initiative, we'll soon have the funds together.The 5th sauna complex is eagerly awaited by the 3rd Battalion of the International Legion Special Forces in Ukraine, where some Estonian boys also serve. It's time to provide them with this support from Estonia!Read more

Situation

Most fighters spend their days in trenches
Many ukrainian fighters are in the trenches every day, under fire from enemy artillery and tanks, but they remain defiant. The situation is reminiscent of the first world war where soldiers can too easily get sick just from the absence of hygiene.
The weather in Eastern Ukraine can be very cold during winters and very hot during summers
The infantryman in the winter feels constant cold. There are cases of the amputation of frozen limbs. During the summer heat, soldiers dehydrate quickly. At the same time, the sweat mixed with dust and mud created formidable environment for different kind of bacteria.
There are no organized washing facilities
Most of the Ukrainian units don't have centrally organised washing facilities. "Last time, I washed myself was a month ago," explained a soldier to us near Bahmut. Uniforms have to be washed by hand and infrequently. Living in constant damp conditions affects the morale of defenders.
