Resources for supporting the people of Ukraine

On this year’s International Women’s Day, Tuesday 8th March 2022, we wanted to use this blog to highlight a list of resources and ways of supporting Ukraine that we have seen being shared by women in the tech and founder community. If you know of any other causes to include, please get in touch so that we can add them. 

Olga Kravchenko, CEO at Musemio, has created a form you can fill out to “support a Ukrainian refugee family with paying for the flights/accommodation for a few days/weeks/taking care of them before they get some sense of stability from the countries they have escaped to”. She’s also written a long list of other ways you can support in this LinkedIn article

Emma Heap, CEO and Co-Founder at Sudor, has started the Ukraine Tech Collective, a “not for profit platform designed to facilitate skill swaps so Ukrainians who are currently protecting their country still get paid & can support their families”. You can donate a skill as an individual or as a company. 

Valeriia Voshchevska, Global Head of Digital Engagement at Amnesty International, is collating jobs and academic opportunities available for Ukrainians right now into one helpful platform. If you know of any opportunities which should be included, you can comment on her LinkedIn post

Nidhima Kohli, CEO and Founder of Beauty Matching Engine, is coordinating large corporate donations and medical supplies. If you can make introductions to people in large corporate companies who can provide torches, tents, power banks, medicine, food, take a look at the list of items needed and get in touch with Nidhima

Carolin Desirée Toepfer, CEO at Cyttraction, is co-ordinating help to Ukrainian Startups across Europe “from funding, in-kind support to lobbying the government to create a framework to help UA startups on the governmental level”. You can message her on LinkedIn or email [email protected] to support. 

Sacha Haco, co-founder and CEO at Unitary, has shared job opportunities for Ukrainians who are looking to move to the UK and have sponsored visas. 

Marine Tanguy, CEO at MTArt Agency, has organised an NFT sale with artist Lorenzo Quinn. All profits will go to Ukrainian charities supporting civilians. You can make a purchase here

Khanyi Mlaba and Tess Lowery from Global Citizen have shared 25 ways you can help Ukraine, including ways to donate, take action and stay informed. They are keeping the list up to date as the situation evolves. 

Once again, if you know of any other causes and resources that should be added to this blog post, please get in touch so that we can include them.
