Various support options: This is how you can help Ukraine

by Shellie Boudreau

In response to the attack on Ukraine, there are many sanctions imposed on Russia by European countries and the US. 

The situation is escalating, and the people of Ukraine need help and support in these dire moments.

As a person from North Jutland or Aalborg, there are options to pursue if you wish to help. Perhaps you would like to donate money, house a refugee or transport materials. There are several possibilities.  

We have compiled a list for you below outlining these options.

If you are aware of other options, feel free to write in the comments on Facebook.

House a refugee

Many Ukrainians are fleeing from their homes as the situation worsens daily.  

A lot are heading to Poland. However, many Danes are opening their arms and offering a safe place for fleeing families. 

In a group on Facebook, you can offer information about your home, about how many you can house, which airport or border you can access, and who you are.

The initiative is open to the whole country, and if you are from Aalborg or North Jutland, you can also help in this way.
