Final words / Conclusions: This is an ‘Emergency Fundraising’ appeal to help the children of Ukraine.
The suffering for children is unimaginable. Many are in shelters – crying, frightened, hungry.
Many children are suffering from shock and injury and are being treated in hospitals.
Many children are displaced and now refugees.
All the children want is to feel safe, to have a home to go to, the right to a meal and education. Sadly that was all stolen from them.
Please help us to make a difference for the children of Ukraine.
We support children in hospitals in Ukraine – neonatal units, children left without parents, children in need who have lost the right to a normal life – due to war in Ukraine.
We are working closely with British – Ukrainian Aid. (Registered in UK and Ukraine) and Voice of Children. (registered in Ukraine)
