Residents raise more than $500,000 for Red Cross Ukraine appeal
Bermuda residents have rallied for war-torn Ukraine with $549,126 in donations since Russia’s invasion in February.
The contributions to the Bermuda Red Cross are to be sent to the British Red Cross in early December – meaning the charity’s Ukraine crisis appeal account closes at the end of this month.
Ann Spencer-Arscott, executive director of the Bermuda Red Cross, said “tremendous” need remained in the beleaguered East European country with the onset of winter.
She said that in Ukraine and its neighbours, five million people had been given emergency aid, eight million had improved access to water, and emergency financial assistance had gone out to 626,000 people.
Anyone wishing to contribute can donate to the Butterfield account 20 006 060 663859 200, or call 236-8253.
Donors can also visit the charity at Berry Hill Road in Paget before November 30.
