“Putin is targeting our children, our civilians!” says Vitali Klitschko, commenting on further tragic events in Ukraine. The Russians have fired on thermal power plants near Vinnitsa and in Lviv. Strategic points on the country’s map are becoming targets of attacks. Thousands of people are deprived of heating and communications. With the coming cold weather, this means they are forced to flee their homes. We are at the scene. Today, aid will reach the inhabitants of the shelled Kiev, tomorrow Dnipro.
Our partners in Dnipro report that hundreds of internally displaced people are fleeing the city, for whom until yesterday the city was a relatively safe haven. It no longer is. The sirens do not stop wailing. More shells are falling on the city. We will not be able to distribute food today. We have planned it for tomorrow. Around 100-150 people will receive aid each day. Food rations in particular are needed. Shops have been closed since yesterday.
After the attack on the cleaning products factory in Kharkiv, the shortage of basic hygiene products may worsen. Our shipment is on its way to Kiev to deliver soap, shampoos, sanitary pads and baby cosmetics to those in need. It will arrive on site today.
We are not slowing down. We are preparing to distribute power generators in the most critical areas. We are also continuously monitoring the situation in the border region.
Do not let yourselves be told that we have helped enough, that now let the Ukrainians fend for themselves. Comments about an imaginary war, evil Ukrainians, pointless aid, flood internet forums. We are constantly fighting against comments ridiculing our actions and the need to reach out to those affected. Every day, however, we also look into the terrified eyes of people who ask us for help. We cannot, we must not, pass by them with indifference.
Join our fundraiser To Help Ukraine. It is becoming increasingly difficult to produce good, which is why we need you, dear good producers, so much!
