The European Student Think Tank stands in solidarity with the innocent civilians affected by the ongoing war in Ukraine. All across Europe, we have witnessed exceptional support and solidarity for the victims of this conflict, the women, children, elderly and people affected by medical conditions that have been forced to flee their homes and that are now in a foreign nation, leaving everything behind. But also the brave Ukrainians who remained inside their country, for their own choice or someone else’s, and who are now fighting for the freedom of their land. There is very little we can all do in this time of uncertainty. While trying to inform and provide insignt into what is currently happening at Europe’s border, we also want to help collect the goods and donations that are so needed by the people of Ukraine. Please, find below a series of websites, associations and organizations actively involved in supporting the refugees and the Ukrainian national army.
