Stiftung Die Brücke zum Leben

War on Ukraine

As the war continues, the need in Ukraine and the number of people who have fled is growing. The country is scarred by destruction and the need for humanitarian aid continues unabated.

As part of the project "Emergency Relief Ukraine", our foundation The Bridge to Life helps through various aid programs directly in Ukraine and in the neighboring countries such as Moldova and Romania to cope with the large waves of refugees. In the report below, you will get a glimpse of the aid already provided.

You can continue to support those suffering from the war by making a monetary donation. This money will be used to buy and distribute food, drinking water, hygiene articles, heating material and medical supplies on site.

Within the framework of our network and the possibilities given to us, we ensure that 100% of the funds are distributed quickly and unbureaucratically to the people affected.

In addition, there is the possibility to help through donations in kind. On the list below you can see what is still needed. As soon as a truck can be packed full, it will go on its way.

How you can help and donate

We are receiving more and more calls for help from our employees in the neighboring countries of Ukraine, such as Romania and Moldova. The number of families who have to leave their homes due to the approaching fighting is increasing daily. The helpful population, which itself lives in great poverty, is offering shelter to refugees and is reaching the limits of its possibilities. Our foundation DIE BRÜCKE ZUM LEBEN wants to bring help to these countries.
