Stand for Ukraine Brighton & Hove proudly supports
THE RAY OF HOPE community initiative.
This group of volunteers worked from the beginning of the full-scale invasion to collect humanitarian aid and deliver it to those in Ukraine.
The group uses several approaches to fundraising, such as running JustGiving campaigns, participating in fundraising events, and running craft stalls at craft fairs selling self-made or donated craft items.

Support animals affected by the war in Ukraine
The project is raising money to purchase and deliver pet food and pet care items to Ukraine. We are working with a charity in the Kharkiv region, which russian attacks have badly damaged. We also work with the veterinary hospital for working dogs, such as sniffer dogs.
After the disaster of Nova Kahovka Dam and the flooding of part of the Kherson Region, we also support shelters that host rescued animals.
