How can I support Ukraine locally in Kings Heath, Birmingham?
The United Nations estimate that, to date, 2.8 million Ukrainians have fled since the Russian invasion. Filippo Grandi, Commissioner of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees has said that “This is the fastest-moving refugee crisis we have seen in Europe since the second world war.”
The call for help has been answered all over the world, and that includes here in Kings Heath. So, where can you donate in Kings Heath to help support refugees and the people affected by the crisis?
