The war in Ukraine: lending a hand and PhoneArena’s stand
The topic of war is a delicate one to discuss. But while the world tries to unravel why this is happening, who is right and wrong, one fact remains—people are suffering.
In situations like this, information can prove overwhelming, especially when deciding how to provide aid for those in need. In that regard, we wanted to share with you a few charitable organizations that we trust and believe can help the people affected by this war.
The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) is a neutral organization and, together with the Ukrainian Red Cross Society, has been aiding the people of Ukraine ever since conflict arose in the country. The ICRC provides doctors and water engineers to help those hurt during the hostilities and provide access to clean water, as well as better living conditions.
The United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF) focuses on aiding children affected by the war in Ukraine. The organization, together with its partners, is working on providing vital humanitarian supplies, as well as essential health, sanitation, water, education, and protection services.
