Ukraine: “Ein Herz für Kinder” provides 1 million euros in emergency aid

The suffering of the little ones in Ukraine is hard to grasp.

Children are hurt and driven away, they have to leave behind, which means safety and security. “We have to do everything we can to help these children quickly and concretely!” says Sarah Majorczyk, Chairwoman of “Ein Herz für Kinder”.

The BILD aid organization is therefore making one million euros available as emergency aid for children from the Ukraine!

Fast help on site

With its project partners such as “humedica” and the “Action Alliance for Disaster Relief”, the association supports the children in this terrible situation on site.

Sebastian Zausch, from humedica eV: “Our most important goal is the rapid transport of relief supplies to neighboring countries, for example Poland and Romania.” The people need warm blankets, sleeping bags, but also long-lasting food.

Because in many refugee shelters in Ukraine and the neighboring countries, the bare essentials are missing.

Help also outside of Ukraine

Shortly before the Polish border in Lemberg, little Emilia (1.5) is stuck with Mama Daria (27) and Grandma Vera (46) from Kharkiv. They had to flee from the bombs, leaving dad and grandpa behind. The BILD aid organization is now supporting children like Emilia who have to leave their country.

Like many families, the women now want to make their way to Germany. And there, too, children urgently need help.

“We are committed to all these children – and you make this possible with your donations, dear readers! I can only thank you from the bottom of my heart for that,” said the “Ein Herz für Kinder” chairwoman.

How does “Ein Herz für Kinder” already help?

On the one hand, the association supports project partners such as “humedica” and the “Action Alliance for Disaster Relief” who are in the crisis regions. For example, food, medicines, bandages, but also everything that protects against the cold and psychological care are needed.

On the other hand, “Ein Herz für Kinder” helps in Germany, for example, is in contact with the Freiburg city mission, which has taken in 150 orphans (BILD reported). They are taken care of for 14 days – after that they need accommodation, care, etc.

“Krisenchat”, which has recruited 200 Ukrainian psychologists, also gets help to help affected children and young people unbureaucratically via chat with everything they have to deal with mentally.
