Thank you to the many who generously supported the CETRA Ukraine Crisis Fund. We successfully reached our goal of raising $10,000 for the Ukrainian Refugee Relief Campaign of the International Rescue Committee (IRC). CETRA has contributed another $10,000 in matching funds.
Here is how donations are being used:
- In Ukraine, the IRC is working with local partners to support the evacuation of women and children, and provide critical information and psychological support, as well as blankets, sleeping bags and warm clothes to people who have been displaced. They are also providing cash so people in need can purchase what they need the most.
- In Poland, IRC staff is on the ground and working with their partners there to provide legal counseling, translation and interpretation services, and psychological support to people who have arrived from Ukraine.
- The IRC is also distributing medical supplies and procuring essential items such as sleeping bags and blankets for distribution at reception centers on the Ukrainian-Polish border.
We are grateful for all the donors that together we have been able to play a small part in this humanitarian relief effort. Thank you again for participating.
