The truly terrible situation in Ukraine worsens by the hour but so too does the momentum of pure human kindness. At the moment of posting this there are some 600,000 refugees seeking safety across the Ukrainian borders into the neighbouring countries of Poland, Slovakia, Hungary, Moldova and Romania. Thousands of volunteers and communities near these borders are working together to help everyone coming across to safety. Many more from every corner of the world are sending aid, medicines, money, food, clothing, tools and anything these people need.
How can we help?
If you would like to donate cash, one way, and possibly the best way, is to find organisations that are based IN or NEAR Ukraine with personnel actually on the ground. Sending money to organisations outside of the Ukraine will take longer to reach the people who really need it right now.
Our dear friend and dancer, Caterina, has sourced and verified the following useful links:
“I have requested colleagues in Ukraine a list of non-governmental organisations working on the ground (in no specific order). There are many more. I have checked all the IBANs for Euros with the official sources (which I added too, there you can find IBANS for other currencies including crypto). If you rather fund the army directly there are also the official links below. Will be updating as more info comes in.”
