Russia has launched an invasion of Ukraine, leaving millions of people fearing for their futures. Like many people across the world, we have been shocked at the escalating violence since the invasion began.
This page is here to show our support to the people of Ukraine, and highlight some ways that people can help if they wish to.
Why is this of particular importance to us at Jane Clayton?
We have colleagues who live and work in Ukraine, in the cities where the Russian army is carrying out attacks.
These colleagues are a huge part of the success of our business, collaborating with us on technical projects and offering unfailing support. They are a big part of our day to day working lives, despite them being nearly 2,000 miles away from our head office in the UK.
The shock felt by the entire world at the violence in Ukraine is intensified for us when we speak with colleagues who are being displaced from their homes, witnessing the devastation of their cities, and fearing for their lives and the lives of their loved ones.
How to help
We have made a donation to the Disasters Emergency Committee, a coalition of 15 leading UK charities, whose collective appeal to provide emergency aid and rapid relief to civilians suffering during the conflict.
Here are some of the ways that people can help the people of Ukraine.
- Donate to the Disasters Emergency Committee
- Donate to The British Red Cross, who have launched an emergency fundraising appeal in response to the growing intensification of fighting in Ukraine
- Donate to UNICEF, who are especially concerned for the safety and wellbeing of children who have become separated from their families
- Donate to the UN Refugee Agency which is working with local authorities and other partners in Ukraine to provide humanitarian assistance
- Donate to Global Giving, a nonprofit organisation that supports other nonprofits by connecting them to donors and companies
Please bear in mind the advice of the Charities Commission on giving in the most effective way. By giving to a registered, regulated charity, the public can have assurance that their funds will be accounted for in line with the charity law framework. Established charities with experience of responding to disasters are usually best placed to reach victims on the ground. You can find out more on the UK Government website here.
