BBUK Ukraine Crisis Appeal – please help
By BBUK In Advocacy, Appeals, Kyiv Project On 24 February 2022
To our supporters
For many years B’nai B’rith has been involved with our Jewish brethren in Ukraine. In Kyiv, helping to feed the elderly and providing them with medicines has been a mainstay for these very poor people. In Odessa we have, for the past twenty-five years, also been providing footwear for homeless children.
The BBUK tour in 2019, highlighted to those members on the visit, the conditions which the elderly and the young were living in. For these Jews, who lived under the severity of a communist dictatorship and even more so, the suffering at first hand of the German invasion in World War Two, life has always been extremely difficult. (For many of us here in this country, we should thank our grandparents who left Ukraine, so many years ago).
Now, another earthquake is upon the people of Ukraine. An actual invasion by the Russian Army is likely to cause untold suffering and hardship to those that BBUK have been assisting.
This is a crisis which we most fortunate Jews must not close our eyes and ears to. We cannot ignore the situation. We are going to have to increase quite considerably the aid we have been giving. We are, all of us, going to have come forward financially, to help those in such great need.
We appeal to you, at this hour of crisis and great need, to help our fellow Jews in Ukraine by making a financial donation.
