UKRAINE - How you can help
if you want to help Ukraine, there is a range of charities that you can support.
British newspapers "The Times" and "The Guardian" published lists of organisations that we can support. Here are a few:
Sunflower of Peace: helps paramedics and doctors, and has been fundraising for supplies, which includes first aid medical tactical backpacks.
Voices of Children: charity in the East of Ukraine (Donetsk and Luhansk regions), providing psychological, social and practical support to children who have been caught up in conflict or separated from their families.
British-Ukrainian Aid: charity that helps people injured or displaced by the conflict, has opened an appeal to raise funds for medical supplies.
UNCHR: sends more resources, staff and aid to Ukraine’s neighbours, who are taking in hundreds of thousands of refugees.
Unicef: the United Nations humanitarian aid organisation focused on children’s welfare is accepting donations to ensure every displaced child receives the health, nutrition and water they deserve to sustain them.
The British Red Cross: your donation will help someone affected get food, water, medicine, first aid, warm clothes and shelter.
Ukrainian independant press:
If you are not in a position to offer financial help, you can also educate yourself and follow the news by reading local newspapers such as "The Kyiv Independant" and "The New Voice of Ukraine" (links recommended by British newspaper "The Guardian").
At Ribbies, we are doing our bit and will donate 5% of our profits to organisations dedicated to children, Unicef and Voices of Children.
