Do you want to help Ukrainian refugees? Join the #CookForUkraine solidarity movement.

Cooking good meals and raising aid for refugees fleeing war: that is the challenge of the #CookForUkraine culinary and solidarity movement. Discovery

Since February 24, 2022, the date when Russia entered the war, solidarity initiatives have increased in Europe and around the world. Example with the #CookForUkraine movement launched by two Russian and Ukrainian culinary authors, Alissa Timoshkina and Olia Hercules. Goal: to raise awareness worldwide for the Russian-Ukrainian conflict, support refugees and raise aid funds to help them with delicious sweet and savory dishes.

The concept can surprise and yet it has already proven itself. Operation #CookForSyria, whose mission is to help Syrian children facing war violence, has raised more than $1 million through the sale of pastries, cookbooks and food clubs.

Let’s cook for peace, freedom, truth, common sense, rational thinking and love† †

What are these donations used for?

The money will be raised by UNICEF, an organization that works worldwide to protect and defend the rights of children and families. Here’s how your donations can help Ukrainian refugees:

  • $32 ($29) would help pay for a large first aid kit for a health worker.
  • 46 dollars (41 euros) would provide a family with an emergency kit for water and hygiene.
  • $80 ($72) would help pay for school supplies to help at least 20 children continue their studies in an emergency.

Since then, more than 2,000 donors have raised USD 119,713 (EUR 108,986).
