I don’t have to tell you what has been happening in Ukraine over the last week. Putin sent his military to invade Ukraine.
Across my social media, I have appealed #PrayForUkraine. Today on my blog I would like to highlight ways you can do something practical to help Ukrainians.
First of all, I have to say I have friends in Ukraine. They are there caring for special needs people; people who have been pushed to the fringes of society, literally, because of uninformed, misinformed thinking about special needs. My friends can not leave these people they care for so they are staying. Please pray for their safety. If you would like to support my friends’ work directly, you can find out more about their work and donate here.
Here’s a list of NGOs/humanitarian organisations in Switzerland:
- Red Cross Switzerland
- Caritas Switzerland
- UN Crisis Relief
- Libereco, which campaigns for human rights has another list of NGOs you can give to and also advise on other things you can do to help
Here’s a list for people outside of Switzerland:
- NPR has a list for people in UK
- Project Hope
- The Evening Standard also has a list of NGOs
- Polish Humanitarian Aid
Now this list is not exhaustive. I am sure there are so many other charities and NGOs that are also asking for help for Ukraine. You just have to google and pick one whose mission appeals to you the most.
Please continue to #PrayForUkraine and do what you can to help.
Thank you very much.
