Tanya and Sergi is the driver from Ukraine. With the help of Alexander, they got the truck started at the Sunflower Scotland warehouse with 18.2 Tons of goods nearly ready to head to Ukraine on Monday.
Save travel to Sergi the driver on his way back through Europe and then into the war zone. It takes courage to drive a huge vehicle into combat zones and it takes many many more volunteers to distribute the aid once unloaded towards the frontlines.
Below is more information about the charity. Please follow them on Facebook or Linked in and keep up the good work.
Sunflower Scotland – help British-Ukrainians to send aid directly to war zones in Ukraine. We are an Edinburgh-based association of volunteers with families and friends in Ukraine: in Kyiv, Kharkiv, Sumy and other places. Our families, along with other innocent Ukrainians, are currently suffering the most terrible atrocities of war. We decided to act. We leverage our first-hand contacts to deliver help right into Ukraine. We have set up direct links with Ukrainian humanitarian groups in Kharkiv and Dnipro. We are sending lorries with aid to the areas affected by war. 100% of the money raised will be used to pay for the lorry costs, such as fuel and ferry crossing, and urgently required goods. Any amount you can give no matter how small will be used to directly help the people of Ukraine. All donations are welcome – we have a list of most needed items and update the list per communications with groups in Ukraine.

I will be donating a few paintings that I have created recently. They are abstractions from the mass of images I have seen of this war. Telegram the app has been a weapon in this war. The images there will seldomly be seen on TV. It shows the dead, wounded, women, children and babies. Cluster bombs do not know the difference. It’s a war crime in 2022. From these images that will I have called this “Mariupol”.
