The Olaf Pine Foundation 


In peaceful times our mission is to implement  new capabilities – innovative ideas, technologies, applied knowledge, and policies – for a better quality of life, safety, and human security.
Fostering mental health is the core priority of the Olaf Pine Foundation. War kills not only physically. Hundreds of thousands of Ukrainian military and civilians urgently need assistance overcoming trauma. Millions will need it tomorrow.


There is no shame in breaking.

We can all break.

We can all heal.

 No one can do your inner work for you.

But this does not mean that you should or need to do it alone.

 The future of humanity is in people and machine intelligence working together for 

the improvement of human beings, society, nature, and our shared universe.

Based on experiences in the USA, the peak in suicides and overt manifestations of mental health disorders among Veterans occurs in the 2nd and 8th year after participation in hostilities. In Ukraine, a sharp wave of suicides and antisocial behavior can be expected in 2022-2024, which is further complicated by the ongoing war which causes continually increasing number of people to be impacted by PTSD and othe stress disorders. 


The Olaf Pine Foundation collaborates with rehabilitation centers, hospitals, veteran organizations, practicing clinical psychologists and psychotherapists that have the expertise to diagnose and treat stress disorders.


We enjoy the support of socially responsible businesses, philanthropists, Ukrainian diaspora, international organizations, and are partnered with the Ukrainian Ministry for Veteran Affairs, Ministry of the Internal Affairs, Ministry of Defense, and Ministry of Health.
