Hello Fremont Family!
We have a Ukrainian family at our school, and they have sent along some ways to help support what's happening to the people there. Below are a number of different ways to help the families, soldiers, and people of the Ukraine. If you are looking for a way to help, please look over this list and see what speaks to you.
If you want to donate medical supplies: - Razom for Ukraine: Razom, meaning “together” in Ukrainian, is a volunteer charity organization originally founded in 2014 to support Ukrainians after Russia annexed Crimea. https://www.facebook.com/RazomForUkraine/about/... -
United Help Ukraine: A nonprofit volunteer organization that receives and distributes donations, medical supplies, and food to Ukrainian refugees, people on the ground in Ukraine, and supports Ukrainian families who have lost soldiers to war. You can access their current fundraiser here, and your donations will go toward providing emergency medical aid and humanitarian relief to those on the front lines. https://www.facebook.com/donate/337101825010055/-
Fundraiser for Sunflower of Peace: Sunflower of Peace’s fundraiser also aims to provide first-aid backpacks to paramedics and doctors on the front lines. Each backpack contains enough tactical first-aid supplies for five to ten people. https://www.facebook.com/donate/507886070680475/-
Revived Soldiers Ukraine: This nonprofit provides medical aid to Ukrainian soldiers and provides support to their families. https://www.rsukraine.org/
To help children affected by the war: - Voices of Children: This organization helps provide psychological and psychosocial support to Ukrainian children affected by armed conflict. https://voices.org.ua/en/
To support journalists in Ukraine: - The Kyiv Independent: You can support Ukraine’s English-language media outlet through GoFundMe or via Patreon. https://kyivindependent.com/about/
Donate meals to fleeing families via Jose Andres's World Central Kitchen: https://donate.wck.org/give/393234#!/donation/checkout

Here is a list of the items that the Ukrainian Army is in need of: https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/Z0NJ9OPSDND9/ref=nav_wishlist_lists_1?fbclid=IwAR1jBX6U0LWX0a0G8c6wbwDUltxWzGNJK4vau2E6EoCEZxzoF8vDuvs3bY0.
Amazon will deliver all the purchased items directly to the warehouse of the carrier Ukraine Express in Delaware (there is no sales tax). When completing the purchase, choose the address in New Castle (I personally know this honest Ukrainian journalist who will receive it). The carrier will transport the containers to the Polish-Ukrainian border, and from there, Serhiy Prytula’s team of volunteers will transport them to the destination.
And here is a link that specifically helps children: https://voices.org.ua/
