SUPPORT UKRAINIANS IN CRISIS
During a humanitarian crisis, it is often the needs of the marginalised and the most vulnerable in society which are overlooked. We at Legacy of War Foundation believe that no person should be left behind. That’s why our ambulances are saving lives and facilitating evacuations in recently liberated areas of Ukraine, and why we’ve funded shelters and hubs around the country to support displaced women, LGBTQ+ people, and adults and children with disabilities.
Legacy of War Foundation campaigns for a world without war, and supports the survivors and communities affected by it. Our founder and CEO, Giles Duley, has a long history of working in Ukraine and has been documenting the conflict in Donbass since 2015.
When the invasion began, we immediately reached out to our partner organisations on the ground. We have a track record of working alongside grassroots organisations who are experienced in providing vital support to their communities, and strive to work in solidarity and collaboration with partners on the ground. We ensure organisations with local experience can continue delivering crucial aid to those who need it the most - while we focus on coordinating funding, vetting partnerships, sourcing and purchasing specialist supplies, and bringing together partners to facilitate their work. Our ten guiding principles - designed in conjunction with our patrons, partners, trustees and staff - underpin all our work.
So far, we’ve delivered over £350000 of aid and donations weighing over 26t (more than four elephants!) to our partners in Ukraine - including fully-equipped ambulances, specialist medical equipment and medications, and wheelchairs and other mobility aids.
Evgeniy of NGO Casers (pictured) explains:
"We have a line of drivers and medics who want to serve and help people — we just need help to evacuate more people and save more lives."
Your donations will help us fund additional vehicles and support for Evgeniy’s team and others, to ensure no-one in front line regions is left behind.
