For just five days, volunteers collected about 128,000 euros for the purchase of generators to be sent to Ukraine. The campaign, based on the idea of publisher Manol Peykov, started on social networks. "People can't live without electricity and that's why the Russian army is bombing the Ukrainian energy grid. It wants to bring people down to their knees," he commented.

According to Peykov, 74 machines have been bought so far and each of them can save ten lives. "We have ordered three large generators for the hospitals in Kherson, where doctors have to operate using headlamps and this is shocking. We have received inquiries from Odessa, from military units, from Kyiv, from Kherson," Manol Peykov also said.
