How We're Helping Displaced Ukrainians in Australia

Australia has welcomed over 8,500 displaced Ukrainian people since the conflict began earlier this year, with the Australian government prioritising visas to help these people to find safety in Australia. Many of the people fleeing Ukraine are potentially at risk with an over-representation of older people, women traveling alone, and many with younger children. Access to government visas, humanitarian services, and employment can be challenging due to language barriers and uncertainty of how to access these support services.

Good Neighbours Australia has formed a partnership with the Ukrainian Council of New South Wales (NSW) and Blue and Yellow Hearts Charity to support displaced Ukrainian people with products and services below.

FOOD & WELL BEING HAMPERS

Good Neighbours has a number of corporate partners who have donated everyday items such as food vouchers, non-perishable food, toiletries, cosmetics, and rapid antigen tests.
Good Neighbours is preparing gift hampers for the newly arrived refugees and will distribute these in collaboration with the Ukrainian Council of NSW at UCNSW meetups in September and October.

TRANSLATION SERVICES

Language differences are a core challenge for refugees arriving in Australia, especially to register and gain access to government support services. Demand has led to a significant shortage of Ukrainian translators.
We have partnered with Kudo, an online video platform that provides live interpretation. Both parties can join a video meeting, seeing each other, speaking their native language whilst hearing a live translation of the other party in real-time. Discover more about Kudo and how it works below.

UCNSW MEETUPS

The Ukraine Council of NSW has established Saturday morning meet-ups at the Ukraine Youth Centre, Lidcombe. This provides an opportunity to hear about government and social support services and to access charity donations such as food and clothing.
Good Neighbours will attend these sessions to distribute our food & wellbeing hampers in collaboration with the Ukraine Council of NSW. Find out more on their website

How We're Helping in Ukraine

TRANSPORTATION

Many of the people who cross the border are women and children, who are vulnerable targets of human trafficking. Many people are forced to find their own way in getting to a safe destination.
With your support Good Neighbours has been providing transport from a border point at Isaccea, Romania and into Bucharest, the capital of Romania.

FOOD & MEDICAL SUPPLIES

The U.N estimates over 10 million people have been displaced and food and water are a challenge, particularly due to the damage to local infrastructure and supply chains.
Good Neighbours has conducted multiple food and medical drops throughout Ukraine and Romania including Cherkasy, Chernivtsi, Molodiya, Constanta, Bucha, Ismileand, and Kiliya.

CHILD SAFETY SHELTERS

Children either traveling alone or in distressing situations are potentially vulnerable to child trafficking. These times can also be incredibly stressful as the children struggle to understand the events unfolding around them.
Good Neighbours has formed partnerships with the UNICEF and local charities such as Inima de Copil and Fight for Freedom.
