Helping the diabetes community in Ukraine, a resource from JDRF UK

A resource has been created by JDRF UK in association with JDRF International, JDRF Australia and the Beyond Type 1 Alliance. It will be updated as more information becomes available.

It says, “People with diabetes in Ukraine will need help, whether they are remaining behind, travelling to safer areas within the country, or crossing the borders. Beyond Type 1 and JDRF have been working with those in Ukraine as well as other global organisations, such as the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) and World Health Organisation (WHO), to better understand how our community can help. Our answer to this question will change as the situation evolves, so check back frequently.

“Right now, one of the best ways to support people inside Ukraine appears to be a collaboration between the UK’s Disaster Emergency Committee Ukraine Appeal, the Ministry of Health of Ukraine, the USA’s Direct Relief (a large-scale humanitarian agency), and the International Diabetes Federation (IDF). They are working closely together to understand where supplies are short, secure donations within Europe, and open up ‘green corridors’ within Ukraine to deliver them quickly to where they’re needed. They have asked those who wish to help to donate either to the Disaster Emergency Committee Ukraine Appeal or to Direct Relief and direct your donation to ‘Ukraine Crisis’.”
