The foundation focuses on long-term projects rather than one-time assistance. It is committed to the principle of indifference towards politics, public reporting on receipts and expenditures (http://savelife.in.ua/), and operational supervision of the equipment that the foundation has delivered to the troops at the forefront.

Over two and a half years, Savelife Foundation has provided assistance for more than 70 detachments of the Ukrainian Armed Forces worth 99,895,466 hryvnia (about $3,663,000 at current exchange rate).
