The Russian invasion of Ukraine and its humanitarian consequences have touched the heart of Poland, a country that's historically no stranger to suffering. Countless individuals and businesses are stepping forward to offer help however they can - be it shelter, food, clothing, help with transport or medical assistance.
The BPCC's members are no exception, and have immediately pledged their willingness to help those caught up in the unfolding drama. Here's how they are helping:
The BPCC stands with Ukraine, supports help for refugees, is disgusted and appalled by Russian aggression and hopes for a swift and peaceful end to this war.
The Sue Ryder Foundation, a BPCC member, which is collecting aid to help those fleeing the invasion for those who have taken Ukrainians under their roof. The Foundation is collection clothes, footwear, toys and kitchen utensils and other articles that are urgently needed by those forced to leave their homes in a hurry. We thank you in advance for your support.
Please let us know what your firm are doing, so we can coordinate and promote via this page, linking members' initiatives and putting in them touch with other organisations who are helping out.
The members can share with us details of how they are prepared to help, which we shall pass on via our website and our social-media channels.
