HOW WE INTEND TO HELP

Rossall School is leading the way in terms of supporting young Ukrainians caught up in the current humanitarian crisis. 

The School has responded decisively and quickly: at least six additional Ukrainian children will join the school at the start of the summer term and this is one aspect of an extensive programme of support that includes a Community Hub. 

This enormous commitment is only possible due to the extraordinary generosity of a School community that has come together to actively respond to those in need. 

Current pupils are raising money to support relief operations in Ukraine itself whilst the wider Rossallian community has contributed to a fund established in order to support a small number of Ukrainian children for as long as is needed. 

The School has gone one step further by sponsoring a family from Kharkiv.

Yuliia and her two sons Oleg (8) and Volodymor (3) who arrived at Manchester Airport 7th April where they will be greeted by members of the School community who have spent a number of days restoring a three bedroomed property on the School site. 

Yuliia and her children have experienced an incredibly difficult journey to get here. As their ‘letters of permission’ took a little while to process, they travelled to Ireland to stay with the Headmaster’s sister-in-law Caroline Dennehy, and her husband Tom, in County Cork. 

Within twenty four hours of arriving, Tom was teaching the boys how to hold a hurley stick! They are amongst the very first families to arrive in the UK under the ‘Home for Ukraine’ scheme.

 

As you know, the humanitarian situation is increasingly dire and desperate. Millions of people have no safe place to call home. More than 3 million have already left Ukraine, while countless more are still trapped underground, taking cover from the shelling, and desperate for a safe escape.

Hundreds of thousands of people still have no food, no water, no medical care, and no heat or electricity.

Red Cross teams have been working around the clock to get critical care to those who need it most, both in Ukraine and its bordering countries. But with recent freezing temperatures, and ongoing violence, an enormous number of people urgently need help right now.

We know the news coverage is overwhelming. But we need your support to keep responding. The best way to do that is with a monthly donation. This situation is changing rapidly and will affect people for some time. But knowing we can rely on your support, together, we can give hope to people in the darkest of times.

How will my donation help people in Ukraine? 

As the security situation allows, the Ukrainian Red Cross Society (URCS) and the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) will continue to respond to existing and emerging humanitarian needs. The Red Cross has supported people affected by this conflict for years and this will not stop now.

Your donation could help someone affected get:

• food
• water
• first aid
• medicines
• warm clothes
• shelter

What is the Red Cross doing to help people now?

So far, Red Cross teams in Ukraine have helped more than 750,000 people since the conflict began. This includes distributing 400 tonnes of vital aid, including food, blankets, hygiene parcels and warm clothes.

First aid training has also been delivered to over 42,000 people so they have the skills to treat their loved ones if needed.

They've also been providing psychosocial support, and helping people regain contact with their loved ones if they've been separated.

Red Cross teams in bordering countries are offering medical care and providing food, aid and shelter to people arriving from Ukraine.

How is the British Red Cross supporting refugees from Ukraine in the UK?

We’re ready to support refugees arriving from Ukraine in the UK. We don’t yet know when or where our support may be needed but we are preparing to warmly welcome refugees who have had to leave their homes and lives behind.   

We are primed to provide compassionate support, information and basics like food, clothes and blankets, if needed, along with helping families contact loved ones, wherever they may be.

Your donation will help us reach more people, for example:

£10 could provide a hygiene kit to a family of five, giving them supplies to stay healthy for a month

£20 could provide five blankets to families taking shelter 

£30 could provide 3,600 chlorine tablets to ensure that families have access to clean, safe water

£100 could provide sleeping mats for 66 people who have been forced from their homes

£210 could provide a fully equipped first aid kit, including supplies, to a first aider treating those wounded
