I am collecting aid, to transport to Poland and be distributed at the Ukrainian borders.
Faye, who is based in Krakow is kindly arranging the onwards distribution of the items and liaising with sources on her side to keep us up to date with what we need.
With hundreds of thousands of people displaced from their homes having fled with minimal physical belongings, we are trying to provide an opportunity to people to be able to give what they can, to assist the people that have been so sadly negatively affected.
With clothing donations fantastically flooding in, the attention shifts more to other items, such as needles, syringes and essential medical equipment. As well as sanitary products and hygiene items.
The fundraiser is designed to raise enough money to transport everything we have already and continue to collect in the UK, over to Poland, and any surplus money will be used to buy the medical equipment that we are signified is desperately required.
People are being asked for monetary donations now, as a lot of people do not have access to medical supplies or innocently are not sure which are most beneficial to purchase. I have access to wholesale medical equipment myself, so we can fill any space in the van with this, before leaving for Poland.
Please contact me if you would like any further details!
If anyone has any additional links with distribution in Poland or Romania, please do get in contact. If there are other ways we can help - we are keen to explore them. A lot of people have reached out regarding various scenarios and other areas that may require assistance and aid, if we can create a solid network to try to get the right items to the right places, this would be incredible!
