Charities located within Salford and beyond are helping the people of Ukraine, with donations of money, blankets and food parcels in response to the Russian invasion that has been taking place over the last week.
The Russian invasion on the Ukraine, one of Russia’s bordering countries, has caused a significant level of damage within Ukraine, and to the country’s people.
At the time of publication, the number of Ukrainians that have fled the area to neighboring countries offering asylum sits at around 660,000 people, as reported by the United Nations (UN), with just over half of that number going to Poland.
Some ways that we can offer our support to the people of Ukraine from here in Salford are included in the list below:
