A package for an elderly person deprived of their home, food, security, and hope by the Ukrainian war costs only PLN 25. One food package is a real lifesaver because it provides another two weeks of life without fear of starvation. The Onet.pl Group, Rotary International (RI), and Kulczyk Foundation want to give the elderly from the Donetsk Oblast food packages purchased thanks to the kind hearts of Poles. The website of the campaign is available at www.wiadomosci.onet.pl/seniorom-ukrainy

You can make a payment to account number 92 1090 1362 0000 0001 2274 9213 (100% will go to help the victims of the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine) with the note ‘humanitarian help’. You can also use the quick transfer system at www.wplaty.kryzyshumanitarnynaukrainie.pl.

The collection will continue until the end of September. There is little time because winter is just around the corner. The situation in eastern Ukraine is serious. There are almost 1.8 million people in need of food in the Luhansk and Donetsk Oblasts. There is another problem: many hospitals were destroyed and there are not enough qualified medical personnel. In total, there are as many as 4.5 million people in need of immediate help and there will be more each day. The simplest form of support, nutritious food, is very important.

Retirees from the Donetsk Oblast make up roughly 70% of the so-called internal refugees: people who left their homes but stayed in Ukraine. There are almost 350,000 of them and most of them have been deprived of their homes and means of living!
