SUPPORTING HUMANITARIAN INTERVENTIONS IN UKRAINE THROUGH LOCAL NETWORKS
On 10th October 2022, Vladimir Putin bombed the Taras Shevchenko playground in Kyiv where our children and their cousins regularly play, 2 blocks away from where Tetyana’s family and our children’s Granny, aunt, uncle and cousin, currently live. Taras Shevcehnko’s Park was where local people got joy in their lives despite all that was going on around them, and now it has been blasted away.
We have been finding out who owns/is responsible for this park and how money can be raised quickly and effectively to restore it asap before winter sets in. The local children carry on using the playground even after it has been damaged so we want to make sure they can continue doing so safely.
Prospero World, a UK registered Charity have been working with us, to identify how best to help. They have agreed to receive your donations on our behalf, and set up a designated Fund which will be channelled in the first instance to restore Taras Shevchenko Playground. Donations that are left over will be channelled to supporting other pressing humanitarian needs which are becoming increasingly urgent as winter approaches.
Donations with your card can be made on this platform or on Prospero website http://www.prosperoworld.org.uk/donate
