Coeliacs in Ukraine need your support
Since the onset of the full-scale occupation of Ukraine, the nation has experienced a devastating loss of its gluten-free food producers, with only four remaining operational. This dire situation has resulted in a critical shortage of gluten-free food, affecting Ukrainian coeliacs who rely on these specialized products for their well-being.
By registering to this event and paying the participant fee you will support the food shipments to Ukraine that has been in operation since March 2022. We heavily rely on contributions from the public and the work from our tireless volunteers to keep the aid going.
