LoveBristol & Friends have therefore been working with several churches and charities on the Polish-Ukrainian border, especially by sourcing items they need and driving supplies to them.
The team have a specific list of items they have been tasked with collecting. These range from sleeping bags, camping mats and blankets, to medical gloves, masks, bandages, and even bulletproof vests and kevlar helmets (if possible).
Further, LoveBristol are recruiting people to VOLUNTEER at the Polish-Ukrainian border.
In addition to driving supplies to Ukraine, the team has also been working at a refugee transit centre in Przemysl, Poland. There, the volunteers help answer questions and solve issues for refugees wanting to go to the UK.
“We’re hoping that having more people present here in Przemysl would increase the information flow and influx of refugees to Bristol.”
If you are hardworking, emotionally/mentally/physically resilient, unoffendable, flexible, resourceful, and have a sense of humour, then you are desperately needed on the ground!
Currently, it is not certain how long the team will be needed in Przemysl, but the minimum time to volunteer would ideally be one week
