War is raging all round in Ukraine with the Russian army moving to encircle major cities.
Russian bombs and missiles have rained down across multiple parts of Ukraine following Vladamir Putin's decision to invade the county of 44 million.
We are in hourly contact with reliable persons on the ground in major cities including Kiev, Mariupol, Berdyansk, Dnipro, Lviv and Odessa
Nobody is able to work, in Mariupol and Berdyansk the streets are a raging war zone and no one can leave their homes. People in the capital city, Kiev, are sheltering in basements, garages and the city's underground metro for safety.
There is now a very small window of opportunity of a few hours or days to get funds to our contacts who will buy food and medical supplies for free onward distribution to those most in need.
This is our No1 priority and we have no time to waste.
Please immediately donate what you can.

Thank you so much for the initial emergency support and for so quickly hitting the target. As the situation is shaping up more money is needed for food, medicine and other emergency supplies. We will update soon on the situation on the ground.
