How can you help Ukraine?
Updated: Mar 6
As a Russian to English translator, the war in Ukraine is top of my mind at the moment. Nothing comes close.
Many friends and colleagues have asked how they can help and many have said they wouldn't know who to donate to. We all have our own personal preferences and areas for concern and as such, I have compiled an extensive list in the hope that you can find an area which you feel most needs your help.
Please feel free to let me know of any more you would like to see included in the list below.
There are some mega-sites which have collated ways to donate:
