Ways to Support the Ukrainian People

submitted by augpres@augsburg.edu

It is both painful and inspiring to witness the courage of the Ukrainian people as they fight for their democracy in the face of an unprovoked invasion and grapple with the resulting humanitarian crisis. Augsburg student Lucas Kurle has collected a helpful set of ways in which we might support the people of Ukraine in this difficult time.

Organizations like UNICEF (the United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund) and GoFundMe are seeking donations to help the Ukrainian people. You can learn more at
https://www.unicefusa.org and https://www.gofundme.com/f/ukraine-humanitarian-fund.

There are also ways to get money directly to Ukrainians who need it. One method is to rent an AirBnB in Ukraine and leave a note in the description indicating that you aren’t coming but simply wanted to donate directly to someone who needs it and offer words of support.

Thank you to Lucas for his interest in this important cause and to those who are able to offer some help to people in crisis.
