We at Medieval Radio would like to extend our concern for those affected by the war in Ukraine, especially for members of the CEU community from Ukraine, Russia, and Belarus who are in danger now and whose family, friends and colleagues are threatened by this war and the political situation.
We have collected some ways in which you can help even if you live far away. The best course of action is to contact the local Ukrainian Embassy where you live and ask them if there is any organized effort you can help with. However, there are also charity organizations that have sprung into action to help out those in need:
Local smaller charities:
♥ Budapest Bike Maffia
https://bikemaffia.com/adomanyozz/ – they are an effective charity, they have already brought a lot of donations like canned food, hygienic stuff, water, etc. to the Hungarian-Ukranian border. They are not a big NGO, that is why they don’t have an English site. See this post for a breakdown of what the Hungarian text means. You can donate using a credit/debit card.
♥ M. Pokrova Charitable Foundation
“There are two ways to support the organisation: Firstly, if you know of any charity organisation that wants to send supplies to Ukraine, do not hesitate to contact us. The organisation will be able to facilitate the border crossing and distribution. Secondly, you can donate. In a situation like this, every little donation can make a difference.
