The Russian Federation unleashed a full-scale invasion of Ukraine in the early hours of Thursday 24 February 2022.
This will be catastrophic for the civilian population. The elderly, vulnerable, children and families are at risk of losing their homes and access to medical and other vital services. The psychological trauma of war will affect generations.
Our Ukrainian Churches and community organisations have united to work with accredited and registered Ukrainian charities to provide medicines, food and critical services to support the most vulnerable to overcome the consequences and trauma of war.
We are asking all our members, communities and supporters to do everything they can to raise funds to #HELPUKRAINE. Donations will be used to fund immediate emergency and ongoing needs, including for example:
2 woollen blankets for individuals or emergency shelters
A food and hygiene pack for one adult for a month or 30 thermal foil blankets for emergency use
A food and hygiene pack for a family of 4 for a month
Towards crisis counselling, support services, and children’s services
A basic emergency medicine pack for 1,000 people for 3 months
Medicine and pharmaceutical pack for 10,000 people for 3 months
The food, hygiene and medical packs comply with specifications set by the World Food Programme, UNICEF and the World Health Organisation (IEHK 2017).
The more we collect, the more we’ll be able to help – particularly with the longer-term impacts of hostilities, displacement and poverty on families, children, the elderly and those with special needs.
Ukraine needs your help now! Please donate whatever you can.
