Urgent appeal for aid to Ukraine
Riverside Hub's owner, Valentina, is Ukrainian and has family and friends still there.
We are taking direct action through our established contacts, to help those most in need.
Clothing is not needed. People in Ukraine need tinned food, baby food, nappies and specialist medical supplies.
Here's how our aid effort works...
Our Ukrainian contacts buy exactly the supplies needed from Poland (saving precious days of not having to transport goods from the UK). They load them into a bus and drive them into Ukraine to distribute to those that need them.
Each shipment is then driven to exactly where it is needed (including a hospital in Slavuta and a relocated orphanage in Vinnytsia, so far).
The empty bus is then filled with refugees fleeing the conflict and driven to safety in Poland.
We're getting aid in and refugees out.
Every penny of your donation will be spent on buying essential items and transporting them to people that need them.
Riverside Hub has donated £20,000 to help out as many people as we possibly can. Each shipment is already making a difference.
Please give what you can, however large or small, every penny is very much appreciated.
