West Midlands, UK, We Need Your Help!
It is with great honour and pride that we can announce our first official aid package is being sent out to the Polish and Ukrainian border!
Thanks to one of our beloved members Tom (ImHysp) & his brother Sam, we now have a contact in the West Midlands, United Kingdom that is making the trip all the way from England to Poland to bring supplies that they have sourced for the Ukrainian refugees still stuck in Ukraine
Tom is currently filling up his vehicle (a Skoda Octavia) to the brim with supplies that he has collected from friends, family and the community of Great Wyrley & Cheslyn Hay! We would also like to thank HCMS (Health Care Management Solutions) for their kind donation towards helping Tom on his journey! He plans on leaving the West Midlands area on March 16th 2022 and fortunately will be documenting his journey! We will have updates in regards to his trip and photos to share for everyone along the way. If you are in the West Midlands or surrounding regions and would like to donate supplies such as hygienic products, non perishable foods, clothing, radios, flashlights, power banks, knee pads or gloves, Tom has asked for you all to reach him on discord here (ImHysp#9448) to setup a day to meet and pick up the items! Don’t forget that he is leaving on March the 16th! If you do not have discord, please contact us at [email protected] & we will setup proper correspondence.
We are so humbled to be able to participate and be a partner to aiding the people that have not been able to receive aid from many of the larger organizations distributing supplies. The major aid organizations are focusing on the large cities, which is where the most aid is needed. However, due to a number of circumstances all directly related to the Russian invasion, the citizens of small towns are being left behind.
Pension funds are not being distributed, old age funds are not being distributed – and this means that the grandparents caring for their grandchildren while the parents are off to war are running out of food. Some of these families have fled Eastern Ukraine with little more than the clothing they are wearing – and we are proud to say that we are able to provide them hygiene supplies, food, and resources to get them safe temporary housing until they are able to cross the border, should they choose to do so.
We can do all of that thanks to your help – so pat yourself on the back and thank you so much, from all of us at Gamers4Ukraine as well as the citizens of Ukraine. Slava Ukraini!
