Sponsor a Ukrainian child!One of our projects is to help Ukrainian children in need. More than 228,000 Ukrainian children became displaced and/or orphaned as a result of the armed conflict in Donbass. Thousands of them have lost their fathers during the current turmoil; their families have been misplaced, their schools and kindergartens destroyed. BUAid raises funds to assist the children in need financially and collects donations of warm clothes, shoes and food. According to “Hope and Homes for Children” NGO, there are 1.6 million IDPs in Ukraine, including 194,000 children. 14,000 children were placed in state institutions due to the conflict during 2014. BUAid works with local partners to provide assistance to orphanages or directly to victims of war. We are also looking into establishing long-lasting contacts between British and Ukrainian families with the view of encouraging a better understanding and friendships between them. You can sponsor a child and become a Guardian angel for someone in need. Get in touch to find out more at firstname.lastname@example.org.
