How Are We Helping Ukraine?
Currently, our Good Neighbours team are on the ground in neighbouring countries and have been assessing the gaps in emergency support for Ukrainian refugees.
Our emergency response will focus on the following:
Most of the people who cross the border are women and children, who are vulnerable targets of human trafficking. As current transport does not have the capacity to accommodate everyone, people are forced to find their own way in getting to a safe destination.
With your support Good Neighbours has begun and will continue to provide transport from border points so people can move freely and safely.
Many cities near the border don't have the capacity to host and support the number of refugees coming in. The local government of Galati, Romania is operating a temporal evacuation centre. Good Neighbours will support the local government to operate the shelter smoothly.
We are partnering with the Isaccea warehouse in Romania, where the border point is, to provide non-perishable food items for internally displaced persons in Ukraine.
