Supporting people from countries in conflict
It’s easy to feel powerless in times like this, and trust that we at MENDO feel the same. Now more than ever, it’s crucial to unite and stand firm with our fellow humans. To spread a message of peace.
Take a stand with the people of Ukraine, with all the refugees from countries in conflict, with the LGBT+ and POC communities, because nobody should have to leave home & hearth because of war.
MENDO supports the relief efforts of Movement On The Ground, Stichting Vluchteling (Giro555) and The International Commitee of the Red Cross. You can help with donating with the respective organisations that support people from nations in conflict.
The moment you read this newsletter the Ukraine-Russia conflict has only been going on for 1 week. In the past 7 days, over 1 million people were forced to leave their country in search of safety. These numbers are unprecedented and ask for a swift, humane and effective humanitarian response. Movement On The Ground feels compelled to act.
Now, we can only decide to put our experience and knowledge to use and support the people at the Ukrainian border. Members of our team are going to the ground to help, and work together with locals and other organizations to respond to the biggest needs.
