As the Russian invasion on Ukraine threatens more and more innocent lives, we would like to share with you ways you can help Ukraine.
The world has be hurt by the devastation that Russia has invaded Ukraine on February 24th 2022. The UN has reported over 1.7 million Ukrainians have become refugees. Parents have had to take heartbreaking measures to protect their children from the war. Families have been killed and homes have been destroyed.
The Ukraine president, Volodymr Zelenskyy said “targeting civilians is a war crime, and it’s totally unacceptable.” These are extremely terrible times and we must work as one to support those people in need of our help.
Many organisations are supporting Ukraine and refugees. Many UK charities are supporting and doing all they can to help. With your donations it can reach the people in need much quicker than donating clothes, blankets etc. Donating on Givey will mean 100% plus Gift Aid of your donation will go to Ukraine and the people of Ukraine.
