FARA's Solidarity for Ukraine: Update

In March, The FARA Foundation appealed for donations to help Ukrainian refugees crossing into Romania, amid the escalating conflict in their country. And so, the ‘Solidarity For Ukraine appeal was launched, with all website donations for March & April pledged towards an emergency fund. In a matter of weeks, this appeal has raised over £20,000. We are extremely grateful to everyone who donated.
