As the war on Ukraine continues, the events that have taken place are devastating, and we are deeply saddened. We stand in solidarity with the people of Ukraine and those impacted by the conflict.
At Zvilo Factor, we believe in actions that uphold our values, and we are actively supporting two well-known, established charities with a strong presence on the ground in Ukraine. These are the British Red Cross DEC Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal, and World Central Kitchen.
The British Red Cross Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal is a key part of the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC). It has been providing critical care, food, water, first aid, medicine, shelter, and warm clothing, to those who need it most, both in Ukraine and its bordering countries.
The World Central Kitchen focuses on emergency food relief by distributing hot, fresh meals in Ukraine and its four neighbouring countries. As part of their #ChefsForUkraine relief effort, they have recently ramped up their response to the active conflict in Ukraine with nearly 1 million meals served and the opening of a new kitchen in Poland.
There are a variety of other great charities providing support to people affected by the crisis in Ukraine. If you also wish to provide support, here are a few more useful links:
- Defend Ukraine has collated a list of fundraisers, charities, and donation links supporting Ukraine, covering financial and humanitarian aid, medical supplies, and military support.
- The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) is working closely with the Ukrainian Red Cross Society to increase its response to the humanitarian needs in Ukraine.
- UNICEF provides lifesaving support for children and families under threat in Ukraine and worldwide.
As a community, we believe that we can make a difference, and we hope that peace will be restored to the region soon.
