Do you want to help Ukraine?
We appreciate offers and expressions of a willingness to help made by individuals; however, at this point, we have to coordinate our assistance with organisations that are experienced in this type of activity and have the necessary contacts – simply put, organisations that know how to ensure that donations reach the people in need in a war situation. That is why we are not setting up any regional collection point or collection of our own in the region at the moment.
