Seven of GlobeIn’s team members live in Ukraine. They are all currently in safe and stable locations, but there are still so many of their fellow citizens that are in need of immediate assistance. Friends of our team members are caught in the grips of war and are hiding from hourly bombardments in the basements and catacombs.
Together with our Ukrainian team members, we are quickly learning the best ways we can help, and we’ve decided to focus our efforts on supporting MASHA Foundation, a non-governmental organization founded in 2020 by Maria Efrosinina(@mashaefrosinina) (Wikipedia: Masha_Efrosinina) a TV host, philanthropist, and UN Honorary Ambassador to Ukraine.
The Masha Foundation was created as a platform to help women who have been affected by domestic violence. In a year of work, they helped to open a shelter in Kyiv, together with our partners they’ve launched the “It seems” platform (itseems.com.ua) and established cooperation with all the shelters for women and children in Ukraine.
Then the war changed their plans. Now they are actively helping women, children, and the elderly to solve urgent problems – food, medicine, sanitary products, clothes, etc. They organize the evacuation of women with children to safe places.
The MASHA Foundation has the necessary human resources to help those affected by the war in Ukraine.
To support them as well you can easily send them a donation through Paypal: https://www.instagram.com/p/CbfPPQhNbzU/?igshid=YmMyMTA2M2Y=
