Collections of goods at Sylvius Building

Nataliia Machushynets (IBL) and Yevhenii Radchenko (LIC) are two PhD candidates from Ukraine. They collect goods for their homecountry. Please find all the details below and support their initiative!

There is a humanitarian catastrophe happening in our homeland. Millions of people flee from war, hide in basements or subway stations, and lack vital goods in surrounded cities. Together with Red Cross we will collect and deliver basic goods to the people in need.

The students of Leiden University in collaboration with the Red Cross and other organizations have already collected many items. In just five days eight trucks of goods have been sent to Ukraine.
