I am a Ukrainian IT professional living in Mission Viejo, CA with my Romanian partner and music teacher . When the full scale Russian invasion into Ukraine has started, we have booked a one-way ticket to fly to Suceava in northern Romania, to be on the ground where the refugees are arriving to offer support in all the ways we can. Including but not limited to: our joint language skills (Ukrainian, Russian, Romanian, English), our educational and child welfare expertise, purchasing any necessities such as food, medicines, and clothing, and most importantly - helping create and run local volunteer groups to help displaced people find short and medium term homes away from camp tents. We are working closely with the Red Cross and local government organizations as well as other local NGOs. Romania alone is expecting over half a million Ukrainian refugees, as part of an overall wave of as much as 5M people fleeing the war. We therefore ask for help financing the effort to help on the ground, as we are doing this on purely volunteering basis and our personal resources are limited. We of course work here for free, and all the money raised goes towards the practical needs and expenses of making this operations as effective as possible, so the needs of the Ukrainian citizens fleeing the war are met.
Thank you for your support.
