On February 24, Russia started its so-called “special military operation” in Ukraine, a defacto full-scale invasion of the sovereign European country. The war has provoked a humanitarian catastrophe in Ukraine. Millions of people had to flee the war inside the country or to neighboring countries such as Poland, Germany, France, and other European allies. Many have lost their relatives, homes, and cities, and got serious injuries due to war actions.
Why it is crucial to help Ukraine
Currently, lots of families cannot earn for living as the war causes enormous damage to the economy of Ukraine. A survey initiated by the Ministry of Statistics of Ukraine shows that in June, almost 47% of enterprises still closed.
The aggressor is now blocking the export of Ukrainian grain, sunflower oil, and seeds, thus terrorizing the whole world with the global hunger threat. The occupants steal grain from the temporarily occupied regions and burn and mine fields. Nevertheless, Ukrainians still resist with the help of the whole free world.
People worldwide make more and more contributions to providing humanitarian and medical aid to Ukrainians. Supporting Ukrainian people who fight for their freedom and independence is a to challenge to their empathy, values, and humanity.
