Helping Ukraine

I want to donate money to help Ukraine. Who should I make my donation to? 
Can I donate medical supplies or equipment for safe transportation to Ukraine?
Can I donate funds towards protective equipment for Ukrainian volunteer/territorial defence forces?
Where can I donate food/clothes to help Ukrainians in Ukraine or Ukrainian refugees who have fled and are now based in Eastern European countries?
I (or my organisation) would like to donate a specific service or items for the newly arrived refugees, for example, computing equipment, education, employment, counselling, therapies, transport, or some other form of help or assistance.
I would like to volunteer to provide a helping hand but do not know who to approach.

SPONSORING A REFUGEE OR PROVIDING ACCOMMODATION

On 14 March the government announced a new sponsorship scheme allowing UK residents to sponsor Ukrainian refugees fleeing the war in Ukraine and offer a safe haven in the UK. Anyone in the UK can register on the government’s dedicated portal, Homes for Ukraine. To be eligible for the scheme, the Ukrainian refugees need to have been resident in Ukraine prior to 1 January 2022.  For further information see: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/homes-for-ukraine-scheme-frequently-asked-questions

I have registered on the government’s website to offer accommodation. Do you have a list of people who need help that you could match for me or, if not, where can I find the details of the people seeking refuge?
I have found someone on social media who is offering to match up Ukrainian refugees with sponsors. What should I do? I just want to help these poor people and am beginning to be put off by having to wait?
