Here's how to help Ukrainians impacted by the Russian invasion of their country.
All the organisations below have made appeals for donations to help Ukrainians.
- Unicef Lëtzebuerg collects donations for relief goods, especially for children in Ukraine.
- Caritas Lëtzebuerg has already provided 50,000 euros in aid. But to help as many people as possible, much more support is needed.
- Care is extremely concerned about the welfare of women and children in the region. Among other things, the low temperatures in Ukraine make fleeing the country all the more difficult.
- Croix-Rouge Lëtzebuerg appealed for donations for those still in Ukraine.
- Médecins sans Frontières is also at the scene and collecting donations.
- The Red Cross also organised a benefit concert for those in Ukraine in cooperation with the Philharmonie and the Philharmonic Orchestra.
- SOS Villages d’Enfants Monde has also launched appeal for solidarity.
- LUkraine is collecting donations for those in Ukraine, including but not limited to medical provisions.
- Kindernothilfe Luxembourg supports immediate help for refugees from Ukraine.
- Pharmaciens Sans Frontières is collecting donations to help with medical supplies.
- Ordre de Malte Luxembourg is collecting monetary donations.
- Médecins du Monde is also appealing for support.
- Passerell Humanisons le droit d'asile is offering assistance.
- Handicap International launched an appeal for donations.
- The Lions Club Mameranus is also showing solidarity and collecting donations.
- The Fondation Kiwanis is accepting donations using the code "Ucrania refugees".
- The Leudelange council is cooperating with Associatioun HUK for war victims from Ukraine.
- Artworks for Ukraine: Artwork is exhibited on 27 March 2022 between 10 am and 6 pm in Mudam.
- FC Résidence Walfer 1908 will be collecting donations with a Charity-run on 27 March between 10 am and 2 pm in Stade Henri Walferdange.
Many people from Ukraine are currently fleeing towards the West and are looking for a place where they can find peace, at least temporarily.
- Anyone who can provide a room or even a little more space for people from Ukraine can contact the hotline set up by Caritas and the Red Cross with the support of the Ministry of Family Affairs. The telephone number is +352 621 796 780 and the email address is Ukraine@zesummeliewen.lu.
- The hotline is available Monday to Friday from 8.30 am to noon and from 1 pm to 5pm. Unfortunately, there isn't enough staff to offer more availabilities. Communications through email are available 24/7 with many volunteers working throughout the weekend.
- There is also an online form with further questions, which is then followed up by a visit at home to ensure the right people are brought together.
- For the wider region, you can offer your home via the initiative #Unterkunft, a project brought by the GLS-Bank, Ekosia, Betterplace.org, and Elinor. The platform Host4Ukraine also allows you to offer accommodation.
