Help on site
With the onset of Russia’s full-scale attack on Ukraine, numerous organizations have joined forces to help people in and out of Ukraine. In the LeaveNoOneBehind Ukraine Info Hub, we joined forces with over 40 organizations and have since supported Ukraine projects with over 2.4 million euros. We have created an effective network, whereby direct help can take place quickly and sustainably. For example, together with the Civilian Crisis Unit Network, we have so far been able to deliver over 5,000 tons of relief supplies to Ukraine.
Ukraine continues to be under daily fire from Russia. Civil infrastructure, energy and heat supply, as well as the mobile network are severely damaged. We continuously identify current needs and adapt our assistance.

Blindspots helps wherever people are forgotten by the media, politics and the public. They bring the "invisible spots" of Europe into the focus of social discourse and strengthen existing aid structures. On the Bosnian-Croatian border, in the Velika Kladuša region, refugees are stuck in patched-up improvised shelters, where they are exposed and unprotected from the wind and weather. This means life-threatening cold in winter, with temperatures as low as -20 degrees. In addition, they are often robbed, beaten up and illegally pushed back by border officials. Blindspots therefore organizes stoves and firewood for the people. They build doors, windows and solar panels on the provisional huts and provide access to drinking water and hygiene facilities. They also document the inhumane and illegal violence at the borders to raise public awareness. Their work is more important now than ever in winter and can save many people from dying of cold.
CADUS is a non-profit and independent aid organization that initiates innovative and sustainable projects with a focus on medical care. Their primary goal is to help people to help themselves in line with their needs.The funding was used, for example, to implement a mobile modular medical care system for the Greek islands. The medical care situation on the Greek islands has only existed at all for people on the move because small NGOs have been working tirelessly to help against all the repression on the ground. The capacities and possible medical services have always been limited, and the situation has worsened massively due to the pandemic. CADUS built on the experience of the first mobile hospital for northeast Syria to create an even more mobile concept of a modular hospital on Lesvos, which can respond quickly and flexibly to the medical emergency on the ground. Thus, testing and treatment capacities were expanded and isolation tents for infected persons were provided.CADUS is also establishing a MEDEVAC system for the hostilities in Ukraine.
