11 Ways To Help Families, Mothers, And Kids In Ukraine If You Live In Hong Kong

Helping Families Flee Ukraine

How To Help Ukraine From Hong Kong Little Steps Asia

A month in and Putin’s attacks on Ukraine are still relentless. Shells are scarring Ukraine’s beautiful landscapes forever. Every day, people are fleeing their homes to the safety of the surrounding countries. It’s thought that 10 million people have already been displaced, 3.5 million have made it across borders into Poland, and another 6.5 million remain in the war-torn country. As the Russian army continues to push into Ukrainian territory, its people face immense danger; families and children are terrified. The world has rallied around to help, and local and international charities have stepped up quickly to offer aid.

Since February 24, 2022, our news feeds have been filled with images of untold horror, sadness, brutal missile attacks, the harrowing loss of innocent lives of children, adults, and animals. The Ukrainian people need our financial support and humanitarian aid to get through this crisis. With their worldly possessions in one bag, the Ukrainians battle the cold and flee into an unknown future. Little Steps Asia has put together a list of important organizations that desperately need your help.

Children fleeing war in Ukraine are at heightened risk of human trafficking and exploitation. The basic civilian infrastructure like water and sanitation facilities is severely limited or non-existent, leaving millions without access to safe water, electricity, internet, and food.

There are all sorts of local fundraisers taking place across Hong Kong; the community is truly coming together to support those fleeing Ukraine and facing unimaginable trauma. Check out a few below…and email us at editor@littlestepsasia.com if there are more you want us to share!
