Raising funds for targeted help for Ukrainian people I know personally caught up in the war zone.

ALL THE DONATED MONEY GOES STRAIGHT TO UKRAINIANS STILL IN UKRAINE IN DESPERATE NEED OF HELP.  


Hello, my name is Zhenya Dove.

I am a Ukrainian living in Edinburgh, whose life, until recently, revolved around my university studies and hobbies. It all changed on the 24th of February when Russia invaded my home country on a whim of a dictator, bringing nothing but death and destruction to people and places dear to me. 

Nowadays I am doing all I can to help my family and friends back in Ukraine, caught up in this atrocious unprovoked war, so I spend most of my days protesting, lobbying, and fund-raising:

If you're from Edinburgh, you probably have seen me on the streets.

The response I received locally and internationally has been phenomenal – so much that I am finding there is an urgent need for a page like this as I keep being swamped by offers of help for people I know personally.  

I am constantly in touch with my family, friends, neighbours, teachers, ex-classmates, university friends and their relatives, who live in various parts of Ukraine – Kakhovka, Mykolayiv, Kyiv. Their spirit is unbreakable. A lot of them are caught up in a dreadful situation with no way out and the lack of food and medicines becoming a major problem, but they still manage to share and help each other. Some tirelessly volunteer and organize distribution of humanitarian aid despite the danger.  

These are the people who were just like you and me two weeks ago, now forced to live in rubble, scrap for basic products and constantly live in fear for their lives. If you want to target your aid to real people – people, I grew up with and can vouch for, please join my effort.

Meeting with the Prime Minister Boris Johnson to discuss the needs of the Ukrainian people.

I transfer the money directly into my friends’ Ukrainian accounts – they have the best knowledge of the current needs in their communities and can direct it accordingly. They buy food, baby and hygiene products, medicine (!), transport for people to evacuate or have the supplies delivered, etc.
