Many initiatives are flourishing on the web to offer shelter to refugees, provide food or clothes or to transport goods and people. Before donating money, double check the organisations managing the funds. Make sure to check websites from your government. In this article, you will see that there are many ways to support Ukraine.
Type of actions you can take:
- Protesting for peace, find the nearest demonstration here.
