You'd love to but you don't know how to help Roma in Ukraine? According to reports by fellow Roma activists, humanitarian aid hardly reaches Roma families and demands are huge. This is why it's important to organise wide support to Roma hiding and fleeing from Russian attacks in Ukraine. This article gathers all ways to donate to Ukrainian Roma charities organising humanitarian and financial aid, medicine, transport, water access for Roma.
To make donating for U.K. Roma residents easier, Ando Glaso SCIO, Roma Glasgow based U.K. charity is raising donations for the following Roma organisations in Ukraine. The money will be equalliy distributed amongst the organisations on an ongoing basis. If you prefer to donate directly to these organisations please see their details below.
Myroslav Horvat, Ukrainian Roma leader, councillor and polical scientist from Uzhgorod provides direct support including shelter, food, water access and further transportation to large number of Roma families running away from Eastern Ukraine.
In an Interview, Myroslav advised Juice Vamosi, U.K. Roma activist about the increasing needs of Roma families trying to find a temporary shelter in Uzhgorod, which has grown into a major refuge for numerous Roma families.

"Stop this war! We do not want this war, we want to stay alive!
A humanitarian catastrophe is imminent in Ukraine as a result of hostilities. People do not have jobs, funds are running out, all state forces are directed to defence, the population is fleeing the war and leaving their homes! My colleagues and I constantly receive calls and messages from friends and acquaintances, asking “How are you? How can I help?"
To sum up, friends, the board of our public organization "YOUTH AGENCY FOR THE ADVOCACY OF ROMA CULTURE" ARCA "decided to open a special account to overcome the humanitarian catastrophe and help everyone who is in need. We will daily report on how much money is coming on the account and on what they were spent.
If you have the opportunity to help financially, please forward the money to the account, every coin is so appreciated and valuable now.
If you want to help in any other way, please contact our organization."
