Ways to help directly
We have gathered initiatives that are ways of helping Ukrainian scholars and students directly. These can be financial or educational.
Appeal for help from Zaporizhzhia National University in Ukraine
Olena Boika Vice-dean for International Affairs Faculty of Biology, Zaporizhzhia National University report on the situation at their university and ask for the following:
Zaporizhzhia city is located near the front line of the war. In our city, we receive internally displaced persons from places of hostilities, and the city of Mariupol which is under siege. Also, several settlements in the Zaporizhzhia region have been destroyed and their inhabitants have come to our city.
At this difficult time, the University must abandon its first task to educate and conduct research, and carry on its public duty to help society and save lives. The displaced people are therefore placed on the territory and in the buildings of Zaporizhzhia National University, they are provided with necessary things and food by the university. Therefore we are in urgent need of financial assistance.
In the attached file, there are the payment details: if you, your colleagues or university have the opportunity to help us it would be extremely useful for us at this time. Even 100 euros is a great support!
If you have any questions, would like more detailed information about these donations or would like to request an official letter from the Rector of Zaporizhzhia National University please contact Olena Boika via email firstname.lastname@example.org
