Funds raised from CVFolk4Ukraine and its aftermath are donated to this appeal organised by the Association of Ukrainians in Great Britain. With low overheads and direct first-hand knowledge of where help is needed, the AUGB is supported by a wide range of community groups and accredited charities in Ukraine to provide food, shelter, medicines and support to the vulnerable.

Over £2000 has been donated so far. Keep it coming – show your appreciation of the music and your compassion for the victims of Kremlin aggression. Be part of the resistance!
