Decapitated/Machine Head guitarist Waclaw “Vogg” Kieltyka is aiding in the effort to get necessary supplies to the people of Ukraine following the Russian invasion of Ukraine late last week. Working in conjunction with several Ukrainian relief organizations, the Polish rocker decided to fill up his van with water, medical supplies and the like to bring across the border of Poland and Ukraine.
On Saturday (2/26), Vogg posted his plans to Instagram, announcing that he was organizing a trip across the Ukraine border and that he was looking to collect clothes, medical supplies, non-perishable food and other necessities for those in need.
Vogg posted an update Monday (2/28) regarding his successful trip,
“We returned to Krakow this morning.
We managed to deliver all the gifts to the Ukrainian side !!
We were also allowed to cross the border several times to deliver the most necessary products collected on the Polish border and reload them on the Ukrainian side.
Help is needed, especially in Ukraine, because people are stuck in traffic jams.
Together with our friends, we want to go to the border again.”
Due to overwhelming support from fans, Vogg has also set up a PayPal account for those who want to donate. “We will use the collected funds to buy medicines, hygiene products, and the most necessary things,” he writes. “I hope you will join us!” Donations can be made on PayPal to [email protected]
