🇺🇦 United 4 Ukraine 🕊 United 4 Peace

“Imagine how you would feel. You worked a lifetime to build a house, raise a family; then comes a day when you need to leave it all behind and fight for your and your children’s survival.”

We have an international humanitarian obligation to act and respond to this crisis.

The crisis in Ukraine has already forced people to flee for their lives and their safety. What they’ve built over a lifetime was left behind as they try to fight for their life and their child life. 

In Moldova, we already have 100,000+ Ukrainian citizens needing help. Some are in transit, but most of them are frightened with kids in hands. The number will only increase.
