The Blue Cross Ukraine has had incredibly tough months since the Russian attack on Ukraine started. Located in Mariupol they had to evacuate women, children, elderly people to other locations in and out of Ukraine. Before the evacuation each day was very stressful and it was not possible to predict what was going to happen. With the blessing of donations the local team has been able to cover most of the basic needs of service users. The mental strength and commitment of BC Ukraine staff and service users has been extraordinary and their good co-operation has saved many lives. We cannot find words to describe all different phases that also led to the evacuation of BC Ukraine.
IBC motto is Doing it Together and at this difficult time, it has been through the solidarity of the other European Countries and people world wide that support has been reaching the most vulnerable people. Currently the European Blue Crosses support the Ukrainian refugees and the vulnerable people who have had to leave as refugees to other countries.
International Blue Cross is supporting this work with women and children especially by supporting Blue Cross Poland and Blue Cross Romania at their local activities with refugees. Blue Cross work is long term social support and resettlement support that help people to keep life free from alcohol and other drug related harm and build hope of better future. Giving people meaningful and safe occupation is also important and BC organisations are supporting groups and activities that provide support for wellbeing. It is most inspiring to see your commitment to support the vulnerable people and we are thankful for all your important donations.
