War on Ukraine

Since the start of the war and as part of the "Emergency Aid Ukraine" project, our Bridge to Life Foundation has continued to help people in Ukraine through various aid programmes. Warm clothing is in great demand, especially in winter. But bandages are also needed time and again. We would like to thank all donors who visit our collection centre and help with donations in kind.

When the war broke out, many families left our children's homes and sought shelter in neighbouring countries. In the meantime, some refugee families have returned home. Others, who have come from crisis areas, are still dependent on protection.

We are very grateful that the children's homes have so far been spared from the terrible bomb attacks. Only a few were hit. But even there we were able to arrange for repairs to be carried out promptly.

At the end of December 2023, we were able to use the donations to send parcels containing sweets, food, toiletries and toys to many orphans, including those from state children's homes. We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all the financial support you have given to Project Ukraine. This enables us to cover the running costs for various causes and assistance.

Every contribution helps!

Within the framework of our network and the possibilities it gives us, we ensure that all funds are channelled 100% quickly and unbureaucratically to the people affected.
