On the 24th of February 2022, Russia launched a military offensive into Ukraine, causing civilian casualties and destroying the country’s infrastructure. More than a quarter of the population has been forced to flee their homes. In the first few weeks, more than 4.3 million refugees fled Ukraine, and a second as many were internally displaced. It is the fastest growing refugee crisis since World War II.
We cannot be indifferent to the suffering of our neighbours – we immediately set out to help!
WE PROVIDE CONSTANT HUMANITARIAN AID IN UKRAINE – PLEASE JOIN US!
How have we helped so far?
We did not hesitate for a moment – from the first day of the conflict we have been reaching out with aid to the victims of the conflict who need it most. We were one of the first organisations to manage to cross the Polish-Ukrainian border to bring urgent aid. We spent the first dozen or so days of the war in the border zone, distributing food, hot drinks, blankets, children’s supplies and even fuel.
How are we helping now?
We regularly send the most urgent aid into the country. Many elderly and disabled people who have been forced to remain in the cities affected by the fighting are receiving life-saving food shipments from us. Those who have decided to stay in the country to support the fighting also receive additional shipments of clothing, heaters and medical supplies. Our shipments reach Lviv, Lutsk, Rivne, Kiev, Slavutych and Mikolayev. We are striving every day to extend the reach of our help.
“I am very grateful to you. Help of such quality has not reached us yet. Everything will prove very useful, and the sleeping bags are already protecting us during the cold nights,” wrote Chaplain Jura from Mikolayev.
We have also not forgotten about the needs of the youngest – we have provided support to a small village kindergarten called Lwiątko. It became a shelter for several dozen children evacuated from the bombed Zhytomyr orphanage. Their legal status has not yet been settled, so they cannot leave the country. Thanks to your support, together we can create a safe home for them, where there is no lack of food or basic necessities.
The Good Factory team has many years of experience in organising humanitarian aid. Our project coordinator – Ola Hera (a Ukrainian citizen) – is in regular contact with local charity organisations. Thanks to this we can be sure that donated aid shipments reach the places where they are most needed. We know all aid recipients by name, and we verify the provided aid – which you can check daily on our Facebook page.
By being well organised, we are always ready to respond to the local needs, and these change dynamically. One need, however, remains unchanged – without your financial support, we cannot provide the urgent aid that is needed to save lives nor care for those most affected by the war! Join us!
