UKRAINE – CWU HUMANITARIAN AID
Further to LTB 088/22, in which we issued a CWU statement in support of the people of Ukraine. We have been contacted by CWU Humanitarian Aid who have advised that they are looking at a number of ways to assist with the relief program to help Ukrainian refugees in Poland, Romania and Moldova and they are initially asking for donations, which will enable them to purchase aid.
CWUHA are looking to Royal Mail or Parcelforce to supply vehicles, which will enable them to transport aid direct to the aid stations. Failing this they will be looking to work with organisations in the various countries to ensure our aid reaches the refugees.
If your branch would like to make a donation to support the CWUHA Refugee appeal – you can either do a BACs to the account below or send a cheque made payable to ‘CWUHA’ to Carl Webb, CWU, 302a Barlow Moor Rd, Manchester, M21 8AY.
