Dear Parents and Alumni,
Kindly consider the following appeal from our Ukrainian students.
We are Ukrainian students at UWC East Africa.
On, Thursday, 24th of February, we woke up with the most terrifying and alarming message we have ever seen in our lives “Putin has started the war in Ukraine.”
At this moment, the war is continuing. The resistance from the Ukrainian population has led to direct bombings of Ukrainian cities and villages and the loss of civilian lives. It has also created a humanitarian problem due to a lack of supplies on the ground.
Therefore, we call you to make a donation to the Red Cross Ukraine fund. Red Cross has been fighting in the forefront to help those in need, affected by armed conflict, blood collection, mobilization of volunteers and resources, and emergency activities.
The donation can be made through the official Red Cross Ukraine website: https://redcross.org.ua/en/donate/.
By doing so, we believe that our school and alumni will act in accordance with UWC values and make a practical and visible effort to bring peace to Ukrainian citizens.
We sincerely hope for your support in this regard and pray for the Ukrainian people in this historic moment for our nation, the European continent, and the world.
Ivan 22’, Yuliia 23’
