SUPPORT FOR VICTIMS OF SEXUAL VIOLATION

There have been cases of sexual violation in Ukraine. Some of these women have fled the country into Poland, however abortions are illegal in Poland. 

 

There are ways to assist these women, one of which is the Abortion Support Network. They provide access to safe abortions, either through access to medication or by covering the cost to have the abortion in another country. 

 

You can help the cause by donating to them, or you can share it with those who are in need of such a service

SEND YOUR LOVE AND SUPPORT

LEAVE A MESSAGE TO THOSE IN NEED

We are collecting messages to those who need support and a few uplifting and understanding words. These messages will be added to a collective audio that will be posted on the Coworking Values Podcast. 

 

You can listen to the previous set of messages we collected. 

 

The idea of the audio messages is to express presence, support to our Ukrainian siblings, colleagues, family members, and friends. 

 

Here are some questions to help your thought process when recording the message: 

- How do you feel about the situation? 

- What does it mean to you? 

- Can you help in any way?

 

Some guidelines when recording your message 

- Each audio message should last 30 to 60 seconds max.

- Every audio message should be in english, the name of the person, and the company or organization that is represented. No ads, no explanation of what the org/business makes.

- The audio messages can be forwarded to +38640215600 via whatsapp or Signal

DONATE MONEY

1.) Vika Zhurbas, founder of the Ukrainian Coworking and Flex office Association, has set up a way for you to donate directly to the Ukraine Coworking Community here. 

 

2.) You can also directly book space or memberships to vetted coworking space operators who will use the income to their spaces to care for their own, their members, and their community’s needs.

Donate on this page.

 

3.) You can support the European Coworking Assembly Ukraine Project.  All donated funds will go directly to the Coworking community affected by the war in Ukraine and to support the Ukraine project of the ECA.
