While there are Ukrainian charities themselves, these organisations are not governed by UK law. We must maintain our emotions and ensure that things are done calmly and efficiently for everyone.
Rather than sending products, one of the best ways to contribute is to donate money to trusted charities and humanitarian organisations.
Your contributions continue to help organisations to provide emergency shelter and medical care, as well as fund evacuation programmes and deliver food, water, and relief materials to the Ukrainian people who need it the most.
Individuals and humanitarian organisations can utilise the cash to buy what is most required because money can be delivered swiftly to the charities in the regions where it is needed. Unsolicited donations of products, while well-intentioned, could well clog the supply chains and delay more critical life-saving aid from getting through.
Charity Today urges the people of the United Kingdom to stand in solidarity with Ukraine. It is important that everybody who wants to play a part in supporting the people of Ukraine get the opportunity to do so safely and securely.
At the top are twenty causes working with Ukraine charities and projects that you can choose from to help #StandWithUkraine.
Always make sure the charity is genuine before giving any financial information. You can search the UK charity register.
If in doubt, ask the charity or organisation for more information.
Social media in Ukraine
The UK Government, Ukrainian Government, Ukraine charities and others have been sharing messages of support on social media using the hashtag #StandForUkraine
Take care of what you share! There is a lot of false information about the conflict circulating online – this is often called misinformation and disinformation. You can do your part to stop the spread:
• Ask yourself – does this look right? Are these legit Ukraine charities? Does this sound right? Does this information come from a source I recognise?
• The Government’s SHARE checklist can help you decide if information can be trusted before you interact with or share it on your social media channels
