Little Wing Relief is shipping to Ukraine and seeking supplies and donations

When disaster strikes, humanitarian groups and individuals step up to answer the call for help. Despite governmental support, additional assistance is critical for populations experiencing crisis. More than ever before, conflict affected populations rely on assistance from humanitarians to survive.  Humanitarian groups and individuals rely on support from donors in order to provide desperately needed assistance to the country in need.

Every Contribution Counts

Link to Youtube video

Narrated by Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky

The UN now reports 17,994 Civilian Casualties in Ukraine
        The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) verified as of January 2, 2023

        - 6,919 killed  (2,737 men, 1,842 women, 175 girls, and 216 boys, 41 children and 1,911 adults (gender yet unknown)
        - 11,075 injured  (2401 men, 1729 women, 233 girls, and 321 boys, 254 children and 6137 adults (gender yet unknown)

OHCHR STATES THAT THE ACTUAL FIGURES ARE MUCH HIGHER
as the receipt of information from some locations where intense hostilities have
been going on has been delayed and many reports are still pending corroboration.

        Ukrainian Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal reports as a result of the shelling, bombing and airstrikes by the Russians:

         Destroyed or Damaged
          - 45 million square meters of housing
          - 656 hospitals

          - 1,900 educational institutions
          - 25,000 kilometers of roads
          - 300 bridges
          - 12 airports
         And Rising.
