People for People has now received over 2300 inbound requests offering and requesting help. Here’s what has happened last week to further support refugees leaving Russia and Ukraine:
Now accepting Ukrainian IDs, bunq helps open 500 more bank accounts for those in the war zone
Our partner bunq now allows refugees to onboard for bank accounts not only with passports, but with Ukrainian ID cards as well. Now more than 1.000 Ukrainians have been able to get access to free accounts to safely hold and spend euros.
Laptops have been delivered to support schooling for Ukrainian children
People for People has been able to provide laptops to a local Ukrainian foundation that supports homeschooling for Ukrainian children. Now more children can continue their education in safety.
Highly requested medical supplies are being delivered to Kiev
The first shipment of medical supplies is on its way to Ukraine. The shipment will go to support the National Military Medical Clinical Center in Kiev.
Local team member helps families with immigration to The Netherlands
A local volunteer of People for People is currently on the ground at Krakow station, helping families to get to safety by immigrating to The Netherlands. The foundation supports him in offering help to organize transportation, housing and visa registration so the families can fully transition to a new country.
