It’s easy to feel totally overwhelmed by the various humanitarian crises around the globe, and most prominently at this moment in Ukraine. That in 2022 such an unconscionable war is taking place is hard to comprehend.
There are so many acts of kindness and humanity happening right now - knowing you can make a direct positive impact can really help.
That’s why throughout March we’re donating £5 from every sale on our website and an extra £5 from every sale over £100 to Choose Love.
Working with carefully vetted partners, Choose Love have already committed over one million pounds to provide:
- Medical care & supplies
- Hygiene kits
- Evacuation support
- Emergency shelter
- Fuel & lorries to transport aid and clothing
- Long term accommodation programmes
- Translation services
- Legal support
- Inclusion & welcome programmes
- Arrival support for BIPOC
- Arrival support for LGBTQIA+ people
There are other ways you can help directly too:
The Ukrainian Red Cross does a wide range of humanitarian work, from aiding refugees to training doctors. Donate here.
There is a huge list of charities listed here in a great article by Global Citizen. Aside from donating money there are some other meaningful ways in which you can help, including keeping yourself and others around you informed and joining organised peaceful protests.
