Ready When You Aren’t
Red Source Ukraine
Since the conflict in Ukraine began, Red Source has carried out multiple truck convoys of aid deliveries into a number of affected cities and villages.
Working closely with our NGO clients, the items we have supplied include food packages, furniture, household supplies and equipment for refugee centres, solar power packages, as well as thousands of first aid kits, tactical helmets and ballistic vests to medical teams in country.
We have provided a range of PPE and medical kits to the security contractors working in country providing protection for the news crews and diplomatic services.
Red Source is the official distributor of equipment for mine clearance, a serious problem which is unfortunately prevalent in Ukraine. As winter approaches, we are ready to supply food, blankets, and warm clothing.
Red Source in Afghanistan
Red Source is actively providing humanitarian aid supplies directly to the people of Afghanistan.
In August 2021, the international community announced it’s departure from Afghanistan, resulting in an almost immediate collapse of the government and swift takeover by the Taliban. The chaotic scenes were witnessed by the world.
The people of Afghanistan have been reliant on international humanitarian support for years, but due to the sudden political uncertainty and increased security threat, the NGOs, along with everyone else, were forced to evacuate until the dust settled and a certain level of security could be assured. This left a humanitarian vacuum at a time when drought, the pandemic, the collapse of healthcare and the economy and a harsh winter became the perfect storm that would leave 23 million people on the brink of starvation and hypothermia.
Within days, in September 2021, Red Source entered Kabul and set up operations to fill the void and enable the NGOs to supply food and blankets through us. With their funding, we locally sourced hundreds of tons of food and blankets and delivered in truck convoys to thousands of families in several provinces. With further funding, we continue to deliver food, blankets, hygiene kits and educational supplies today, directly to the Afghan people.
For the comfort of our donors, we not only provide financial transparency, but we photograph and video every delivery, so they can see exactly where their money is being spent and who they are helping. We can usually place food in the hands of the families within seven to ten days of receiving funding.
“In Afghanistan, before our very eyes, we are witnessing the Live Aid moment of our generation.”

Red Source Africa
Red Source has supplied operational items and equipment to a number of countries in Africa.
Recently we supplied a full range of bespoke furniture for two modular accommodation aid camps that housed the staff and their security details.
The delivery included every furniture item for each room, including living, sleeping and dining, all electrical appliances, all fixtures, fittings, flooring, sanitaryware and linens.
Due to the harsh environment, the furniture was of robust standard but was constructed to ensure maximum comfort. It was designed in flat pack form for easy transportation, storage, handling and simple assembly.
The torrential rainstorms in country during the onward shipments from Mogadishu to the remote locations, required hardwearing, special sealed waterproof packaging.
Upon completion of the first camp set up, due to positive customer feedback, several further orders were placed to Somalia and Mozambique.
