Your chance to help Ukrainian families rebuild their war-torn lives. The brutal war in Ukraine is forcing innocent children and families across the country into bomb shelters to escape shelling and explosions. Meanwhile, many families have managed – despite the terrifyingly dangerous conditions – to flee the tyranny and daily attacks.
Grabbing just what they can - documents, a couple of photos, money, a few clothes – and they have run for their lives. Navigating tanks, soldiers with machine guns, and bombs seemingly coming from nowhere, in snow and sub-zero temperatures, day after day, night after night, with determination and courage they headed to the borders with neighbouring countries to cross. Now they’ve managed to escape with their lives, they now need help with shelter, food, water, hygiene packs and other life-saving aid, including counselling. And the situation is urgent. They cannot wait.
Help needs to be delivered to these people so they can try and re-start their lives under the most horrific of circumstances. It’s been heart-warming that so many of us have been wanting to help these Ukrainian families as they try and rebuild their lives and aim for a brighter, safer future. But it’s often hard to know how and where to start. Until now.
It’s why our CEO, Nigel Green, has signed up to run a half marathon – the first time he has taken on such a feat since 2013! Nigel will be raising funds for various charities. In addition, we also have direct contact with Ukrainian families whose lives have been destroyed by this war and now need to start again from scratch. We will work directly with them, where possible. This is YOUR chance to make a huge, positive impact on the lives of innocent children and families who have literally had to run for their lives. You can either sponsor Nigel for the half marathon and, putting his money where his mouth is with characteristic generosity, he’s agreed to double whatever amount someone sponsors him.
Alternatively, you can simply make a donation. With your support, we’re confident that we can directly help those affected by the Russia-Ukraine war. Will you help give them an opportunity of the future they deserve?
