    Story

    I am a British guy, often with family in the South of Poland and on Saturday 26th February a close friend of mind IGOR, was brutally murdered by Russian soldiers as he tried to go about his daily business. One of his dogs was also violently shot dead, the other was found alive, never wanting to leave his side as IGOR's body lay in a ditch after his assailants dragged it there out of the way. I have other friends around Kiev and surrounding towns and cities who are now fighting with everything they have to survive and regain their freedom.

    I have decided to honour IGOR and am now heading to the Ukrainian border to offer supplies, medical support where I can and to support extract and evacuate Ukrainian women and children. I am also raising money because there are a large number of orphans now entering our region and I wish to support to change their lives where I can. This funding will help to support those trapped at the border and any remaining funds upon my return from Ukraine will be distributed to the children who need it most. Whether that be to support their schooling, rehoming or even their hobbies, so that they may better feel some sense of normality in their lives aside from what they've had to face.

    I've set a benchmark of £1000 but if we raise more than that then I will ensure that it is directed to those suffering as they try to rebuild their lives. Give what you can if you feel you can support, if not that's ok too, just please share this message, that oppression is not acceptable and that the only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good people to do nothing. Peace and love!!

      Thank you to everyone who has supported this endeavour. Since setting up the page I have rescued an elderly couple from inside Ukraine, as they were trapped and unable to escape. I have also rescued my friends younger brother Maks who is 10 years old and has no main family outside Ukraine, so I've adopted him to ensure his safeguarding. I've helped to evacuate hundreds of women, children and elderly through 3 different borders and seen them linked in to the support networks in Poland. It's been a whirlwind, but I feel humbled by the experience.

      There are those who believe it is only great power that can hold evil in check. They are wrong. That power lies in the small, everyday deeds of ordinary folk. Small acts of kindness & love.
