Thinking of Ukraine

Ukraine flag colours

The desperate situation in Ukraine makes us all think about what can we do individually. If you use social media you are probably aware of local collections via schools of sanitary products and baby food for the hundreds of thousands of refugees coming into Romania, Hungary and Poland.

This emergency appeal lists items that are needed including crisis counselling and basic emergency medical kits to support the mainly women and children arriving.

It may be easier logistically to donate via the GoFundMe page organised by the Association of Ukrainians in Great Britain (AUGB). AUGB’s official website is here and it has local centres across the UK – the only one in the Thames Valley is in Reading.

Or, if you prefer, the British Red Cross has an emergency appeal too – find it here.

Our thoughts are with our Ukrainian colleagues who work in our international workforce.
