UKRAINE – what can we do to help?

By the time our newsletter goes out on 9th March 2022 most of the collections for people in Ukraine in York will have already been sorted and heading in vans over to the continent.

A huge rally took place on Saturday 5th March attended by hundreds of people.

At Social Vision we don’t have the capacity collate all the information out there about how you can help Ukraine, but we can point you to some relevant blogs and information that has been released.


Donate your Cash directly

The most comprehensive way to make a difference at the moment is cash donations to the Disasters Emergency Committee.

Write to your MP

Both our MPs actively took part in rallies on Saturday 5 March at York Stands with Ukraine. But you can still have your voice by contacting them and urge them to support Ukraine by pushing for sanctions and safe passage for refugees.

Write to your children’s school 

Write to your children’s Head Teacher asking them to provide counselling to pupils, to ensure that discussions of the war in school show respect to Ukraine and condemn Russia’s illegal invasion, and to suggest that the school fundraise for humanitarian aid in Ukraine.

Support Ukrainian Charities in the UK (from the Guardian) 

There are several Ukrainian charities working on the ground. Sunflower of Peace is a charity that helps paramedics and doctors, and has been fundraising for supplies, which includes first aid medical tactical backpacks.

United Help Ukraine focuses on providing medical supplies and humanitarian aid, and raising awareness of the conflict.

Voices of Children aims to help children affected by the war in eastern Ukraine, providing support through art therapy, psychologists, video storytelling and a number of other methods.

The British Red Cross has launched an emergency appeal to help Ukraine. The charity will be updating its webpage with news on the work its team is doing, and how support will be used to help people.
