Disaster Relief & Recovery for Ukraine
There are around 20 thousand students studying in universities across Ukraine. In the present Russian – Ukraine war, these students are stranded, facing dangers of conflict, shortage of food, transport and shelter. While students have been given necessary advisories on where to go for safety and how to reach border posts with neighboring countries in the west of the country, particularly Poland, Romania and Hungary, it is Sewa International Europe in coordination with HSS Ukraine that are doing yeomen service to these desperate students at the ground level.
Sewa Europe has presence in 18 cities across Ukraine. They are arranging buses/trains for transport and food for these students while on their way to border check posts where they are then taken to airports. Over the past few days, many groups of students have been successfully transported by buses with the efforts of HSS Ukraine/Sewa Europe. Students have been provided night shelter, food and transport for onward journey to the Romanian border. Over 5200 students have registered on the Sewa Europe helpline. They are provided information, guidelines and moral encouragement.
Sewa International Europe are coordinating efforts to support stranded students and families in Ukraine. We have started a helpline, where we require volunteers to support the helpline team to call over 2000 registered stranded people. We would required your help to call and reassure them, collate vital information and give appropriate guidance. English speaking required and Hindi speaking would be desirable.
