Denis Yurch, a Go Dharmic volunteer, who himself has been made a refugee, is leading a team of volunteers in Kyiv. They are providing essential humanitarian relief for Ukrainian residents camped in bomb shelters, unable to escape to safer regions. The volunteers are ensuring hot food, hygiene, and medical supplies are being distributed to those trapped in the siege. Go Dharmic has committed to 10,000 meals around Kyiv.
“My family is safe now as they are in the southern part of the country. They asked me to join them, but I decided to stay back, as Kyiv is my city – if we all protect it then we can win!”
On the Romanian border, Go Dharmic has been able to send emergency packages containing: blankets, clothing, food, PPE, sanitary products and medical aid, to support refugees who are coming in from Ukraine to Romania. Volunteers there have reported that many of those who have evacuated left with nearly no possessions and have been cut off from friends and family. To overcome the communication problem, Go Dharmic is initiating a programme to distribute SIM-Cards with Data and offer technical support, to ensure refugees can make contact with separated loved ones. Go Dharmic have seen a marked improvement in the mental well-being of those who have been able to hear a relative’s voice and establish that they are safe. Hanuman Dass, Go Dharmic’s Founder says:
“At this moment in time, the World’s attention is on assisting people who are suffering as a result of the Ukrainian crisis. Our volunteers on the ground are carrying out brave humanitarian work, ensuring medical support, food and warm clothing is available. We should all try to do whatever we can to help people at this devastating time. We must mobilise now.”
To raise additional funds, Go Dharmic is holding a 36-hour match-funded event between 6 and 7 March, to support our campaigns and our Ukrainian civilian relief efforts.
