The young people at Treads wanted to do their bit to help the people of Ukraine, so we set up Justgiving and chose to raise money for The British Red Cross.
How is the Ukrainian Red Cross helping on the ground?
Ukrainian Red Cross volunteers are reaching as many people as possible, distributing 30,000 food and hygiene parcels so far, and helping evacuate people with disabilities.
The Ukrainian Red Cross has also provided food, warm clothing and other aid to around 8,000 people sheltering in metro stations. They are also providing first aid, and have done first aid training for more than 2,000 people in metro stations and bomb shelters.
The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) is working to provide water and repair water infrastructure especially in areas in the east, where water supplies have been disrupted. They have set up water points and delivered water to villages and hospitals
Please help us reach our £1000 target by donating what you can afford and sharing our post. Thank you 🙏
