The invasion by Russian forces on Wednesday February 23rd has caused widespread shock and fear and resulted in over 100,000 casualties to date. Families have been torn apart with over ½ million people so far fleeing to the neighbouring countries of Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Hungary and Moldova. Fighting in the streets of Ukraine's largest cities continues, forcing families to find shelter in basements and tube stations away from the violence.
“In response to the crisis we have launched an Emergency Appeal, seeking funds for thousands of food parcels which will be distributed to vulnerable children and families cut off from accessing basic needs as they seek safety for themselves. A gift of £15 will enable us to distribute a food parcel to a family in need. We are also responding to the 70,000 people who have fled Ukraine to Moldova where we have a team in the small village of Palanca close to the border. Here we are helping serve meals and providing shelter to as many people as we can.
Please help today with a donation and help us distribute emergency food, supplies, and clothing to those fleeing the war as refugees as well as those that cannot leave the country.
