I will be sleeping in the tent Saturday 26th for 7 nights.

How will my donation help people in Ukraine? We are responding to needs of people by: Repairing vital infrastructure such as water stations supplying water to over 800,000 people. Supporting small businesses with cash grants or equipment and vocational training. Raising awareness of mines through training and educational sessions run with the URCS and providing mine warning signs to mark dangerous areas. Helping repair homes, healthcare centers, schools an
