Help Ukraine collect clothes for women and children and other essential items, before taking them to Poland for Ukrainian refugees. These will be flown to Poland from Glasgow on Friday.

The most popular

Refuweegee, the Glasgow charity that helps refugees settle in the city, delivered items to Mossgiel Organic Farm, south of Kilmarnock, which acted as a drop-off centre. These items are being transported by truck to Poland along with supplies for the refugees.

It’s not the only farm that has provided support. The Herron Farm Shop and Kitchen near Strathaven also collected items to take to Poland.

Although these collections are now closed, keep an eye on social networks to see new collection points appear.

Those wishing to drop off larger items can do so at Glasgow Church on Glasgow Road in Cambuslang.

To give money

A number of organizations are appealing for financial support for their work in Ukraine. These funds will be used to help people get food and water, first aid, warm clothing and shelter.

British-Ukrainian aid offers assistance to vulnerable people, whether they are physically, mentally or socially disadvantaged.
