SUPPORT UKRAINE NOW
The People of Ukraine urgently need your help
New Forest for Ukraine is a group of like-minded volunteers living in the New Forest. We are united by our determination to help the people displaced by the war in Ukraine, and our belief that together we can make a difference.
We focus on collecting and delivering the latest required aid DIRECTLY to Ukrainian refugees in Ukraine and we do so as quickly and efficiently as possible. As of September 2023, we have sent over 170 metric tonnes, conservatively valued at more than £2.3m of aid. Now we are shipping by truck, we turn £1 of cash donated into £100 worth of delivered aid. We also do what we can to ensure door-to-door traceability to ensure your donations get to the people who need them most, including individuals and families sheltering on the front line.
We urgently need both physical and financial donations to keep our operations going. Please help in any way that you can. All of our team are volunteers, and are doing what we can to support, collect, sort and transport aid.
We welcome the opportunity to partner with like-minded groups to support the people of Ukraine.
We are a registered Community Interest Group.
