THE shock waves from Moscow’s invasion of its neighbour have awakened a motion of solidarity with the Ukrainian people all over the world.
Mass demonstrations in several European capitals against the attack orchestrated by Vladimir Putin have been joined these days by a whole network of international aid to help as the humanitarian crisis unfolds in Ukraine.
From donating clothing to pet food, you can help families and children caught in the conflict by contributing items to keep them safe, warm and fed.
The principal items required are: Basic first aid such as bandages, iodine, painkillers, ointments for burns and hygiene products. They also need generators, torches, blankets and sleeping bags, batteries, baby food, mats, boots and non-perishable food, such as tinned food, energy bars and dried fruit and nuts.
