Ukraine Refugee Appeal

*UPDATE 11 MAY 2022*

We have just hit £14,000 in donations!  Thank you! 🇺🇦 
Our last 3 shifts at SHARE Mold have welcomed Ukrainian guests with their Hosts, a total of 19 so far. We are pleased to provide any toiletries, footwear, clothing and toys.

Showing the lovely children into our toy room is always our favourite part.
Seeing them choosing their very own toys is so lovely. 💞
Yesterday was no exception for our last visitors of the day, especially for a little boy who chose a box with a toy garage on and pictures of cars on the box.
He was so excited and couldn't wait to get back home so he could play with his new toys. 💞

Later at home I got a call from the host to say that there was no cars included and the little boy was distraught, I could hear him crying in the background. 😥 he was inconsolable.

It may sound extreme but when you are 5 years old and have been through what they have, leaving everything you own, your home, your family, your friends, your own toys etc ...its a big deal.

So we arranged to get him some toy cars and delivered them today to the host at her workplace. I think it's safe to say that we now have a happy little boy.😊

🔴 Notice for Hosts
Please be advised that we are using an appointment only system. If you wish to bring in your Ukrainian guests please call us to book an appointment first. Thank you 🇺🇦

We are getting lots of requests on how people can help animals. This website has lots of information on Charities dedicated to helping animals in Ukraine.

Help us hit £10,000!

After being inundated last week with physical donations of aid we are now preparing to send a team of SHARE Volunteers from Chester & North Wales to the Polish / Ukrainian Border, this could happen as soon as next week, we have already established links with other charities and teams on the ground and our team from Chester & North Wales will be focused on buying and distributing aid, including food and medical supplies at various points along the border where hundreds of thousands of people are arriving. We will be reporting back daily so that anyone donating to our appeal can see how their money is being used. We need your support, fundraising and donations now more than ever. 


*UPDATE 2 MARCH 2022*

SHARE have been inundated with very very kind donations of aid for people fleeing from Ukraine. We are confident that we will have enough to fill the trucks leaving for Poland on Friday and therefore we will be pausing our appeal for donations of aid from 12 noon on Thursday 3rd March.

SHARE will now be focusing instead on raising financial donations, so that we can buy further specific donations on location near to the border of Ukraine, buying aid on location has multiple benefits, it supports the local economy in the areas where refugees are and more importantly it will allow us to buy exactly what is needed on the ground at that moment, it also makes the most of your donations, instead of us needing to pay for haulage, so that every penny can be used to buy much needed aid.

If you are able to donate or help us to raise money please donate online here.


*UPDATE 28 FEB*

During the week of 7th March, 3 lorries with essential humanitarian supplies will leave for the Poland-Ukraine border to help mothers with children who were forced to flee the conflict with Russia.

The support is coordinated by the PISC organisation based in Wrexham http://pisc.uk
