How you can help
The easiest and most effective way to support the humanitarian situation in Ukraine is to make a donation to the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) Ukraine appeal. The UK Government has also said that it will match every £ donated.
The DEC and other major charities are asking for donations of money rather than goods. Donating money allows international charities such as the DEC to procure what’s required on the ground, so it can be delivered to people more quickly rather than trying to transport goods from the UK to Ukraine.
Be scam aware
Times of crisis may bring out the best in most of us, but they are a magnet for scammers – as warned by Norfolk Trading Standards.
If you are looking to help people in Ukraine, remember to donate wisely.
