Upcoming Events in Solidarity with Ukraine

 

Ways that you can help:

Donate to Charity

There are many charities that you can donate to help Ukraine. A really useful site that lists bigger charities can be found here (https://how-to-help-ukraine-now.super.site/).

The University of St Andrews has also set up a Hardship Appeal for St Andrews Students and Staff affected by the war in Ukraine. Assisting with accommodation, living expenses and other incidentals faced in the months ahead, the Fund aims to provide peace of mind that St Andrews will remain a safe and supportive haven for anyone directly affected by the war. You can donate here.


Protest, and write to your MP/MSP

You can show solidarity by joining a local protest, wearing blue and yellow (the national colours of Ukraine), or by putting a poster on your window.

You can also help by sending an email or letter to your government representative.  A personal email/letter written in your own words works the best. If you are unsure about what to focus on in your email/letter, here is a link to a Google Document that includes a lot of ideas, some of which you might want to include in your own letter. 

Where to find their contacts: USA, UK (MP and MSP), FranceSpain, Germany .
