About the Ukraine team

The Ukraine invasion left us feeling helpless, knowing our family and friends were in direct danger. We scrambled to help them to find their way to safety and to find help nearby, especially in the areas of transport and accommodation.

 

But overwhelmingly we felt helpless -- all we could do is organise and talk. Looking at social media there were thousands of asks for help per hour, most with some likes and no responses. It felt like there was nothing we could do.

 

So we decided to do something. We partnered with Helpify Community and translated the site and make it global.

Why Helpify Community? Because this humanitarian crisis is only going to grow, and the people in need right now are highly vulnerable. We want people in need to have a platform where they can get access to volunteer helpers who have had their identity validated. It is core to our values and to our mission.
