Take part of local initiatives

Everywhere, the solidarity is up and running. Since the 24th February 2022, dozen of local businesses across Ireland have been setting up dropping points for donations and fundraising to help Ukrainian people, mainly through call outs on social media.

Products and equipment of first necessity are the most needed such as : blankets,soap, toothpaste, sleeping bags, first aid bandages, nappies, mattresses, towels, clothes, medicines, etc.

For most of them, those donations will be taken to border towns in Poland where hundreds of Ukrainian families have escaped from war.

Many other businesses across the country are doing the same, if you are notDublin based you can still help. Just do a quick research on your social media platforms or your internet search engine to find them.


Show your support and stay well informed

There are many other ways to show your support to the Ukrainian Cause, not necessarily financially.

You can show it online, by sharing the Ukrainian flag and the trending hashtag #westandwithukraine, posting messages of hope, sharing initiatives that you find or are part of, such as peace protests.  

As the events are making a huge noise throughout the world, information is coming from all channels, and it can be difficult to know what is real or fake news. Therefore, make sure to be aware of the source of the news you are reading and stay well informed about the situation.
