Start of a new year for Wool for Ukraine

By Simon Gill | Project Manager ZFR

Another Year! As we head towards the 3rd year of the War in Ukraine we find that we still have very much to do.  Since we began we have supported and created wool groups in Poland, Ukraine and across Europe. We also have wool support groups in the USA. In total we have been sending   wool from your  donations and providing workshops and groups in Poland, in Zywiec, Bielsko-Biaa, Katowice, Kraków, Slemien and  Warsaw. We have five groups we help in Ukraine itself. We have four groups in Germany, an associated group in Iceland, one in Norway and two in the USA.

With our own activities from Zywiec we have around 150 direct beneficairies and across our growing network some 700 people that have been involved in this action. 

Much of the focus has changed. We began by distributing more than 1200 craft bags so that refugees could find peace of mind through wool crafting.  This developed into the therapy and work groups many of which produce emergency clothing and garments that get sent through to Ukraine, or are being made in Ukraine. These include medical clothing as well as warm winter clothing (lots of socks, gloves and hats). 

The action still continues as there will be  no early end to the conflict and over time the number of displaced people needing support continues to grow. In many respects it has become a forgotten conflict in many peoples eyes, but be assured there are many to help and  still much to be made (knitted, woven, crocheted and felted!) as well as many more troubled or damaged souls to support and repair.

Your help and dontaions are still much needed and as yet we have to reach our target through the GlobalGiving Pages.

For all those who have supported Wool for Ukraine you have our sincere gratitude and love for your help.
