Our friends and colleagues in GEN Ukraine have been working tirelessly since the war began to provide refuge and humanitarian support in ecovillages, as well as helping refugees adapt and embed into community life through activities like food growing and building. You can find more information about their work here.
GEN Ukraine is now launching an urgent fundraising campaign as winter approaches, and we’re sharing their requests here.
In October Ukrainian energy infrastructure was severely attacked. 30% of Ukraine’s power stations were destroyed and the attacks go on. It causes massive blackouts across the country. Our ecovillages that host refugees now live with everyday power supply interruptions.
Around 600 refugees are staying in the locations of the network for winter and there are also around 600 community members. GEN Ukraine launches a fundraising campaign for the project ‘Green Road of Ecovillages’ to cover the urgent needs for this winter:
▪️Power banks, power stations, voltage regulators
▪️Gas camping stoves
▪️Over and under voltage relays
▪️Winter sleeping bags and warm blankets
▪️Electricity, fuel and wood compensations for low-income categories
