The situation is truly tragic! Hundreds of thousands of Ukrainian refugees are crossing the Polish border every day, mainly women and children. They need your help!
Polish Mayo School supported by Westport GAA Club, Westport Camogie Club, Chilli Coffee Shop and Market 57, are organising a collection this weekend – Saturday, 5th and Sunday 6th March at Westport GAA Club to provide humanitarian aid to Ukrainian refugees in Poland.
Please support this great cause by dropping off items from the list. If you cannot make this weekend, please donate at the link below at Siepomaga.
Siepomaga is a reputable charity organisation that are at the very centre of the work that is happening on the ground in Poland.
Disclaimer: Money donated to Siepomaga will go directly to Ukrainian people in Poland. Westport GAA club does not benefit financially from the fundraiser.
There are many fraudulent websites that seek to raise funds and claiming they are to help Ukraine. Please be vigilant and only use reputable organisations.
Thank you for your support.
