Information about Donations in Support of the Crisis in the Ukraine
Details on how how to donate, both in terms of finance and or practical means, will be updated here
Red Cross teams in bordering countries including Poland, Moldova, Slovakia and Romania have been supporting people on arrival in each country. They are distributing food and basic aid items and providing medical and psychosocial support for people arriving from Ukraine. They have given shelter to people in temporary accommodation centres and are supporting people to travel on to other areas.
People have been incredibly generous in donating clothes, medication etc. At this time, however, the Red Cross has emphasised their request for financial support rather than goods. Across Europe, people have been incredibly responsive and have delivered truck loads of much needed items. This now has to be sorted and the deliveries need to be co-ordinated with areas citing specific needs. It is reported that this not only costs money to achieve but is also distracting humanitarian response from activity on the ground. The Red Cross and other organisations are asking for financial donations so that they can spot purchase equipment and goods which are needed in specific areas.
