The European Association of Research Managers and Administrators (EARMA) has launched an appeal to raise funds for UNICEF, who are supporting children effected by the war in Ukraine. EARMA has donated €5,000 to this fund and we are encouraging our community to help us make this total grow.
The number of children killed and injured is increasing dramatically due to the violence in and around the country's major cities and now concentrated in Eastern Ukraine. Since the beginning of the war, according to official figures, more than 200 children have been killed and around 300 injured. Actual numbers may be much higher.
The conflict has left thousands of children hiding underground without safe drinking water, electricity and access to other essential services such as healthcare. They are unable to attend school and are deeply traumatised by the violence they see around them. Across the country, children need security, stability, protection and psychological support.
