Newsletter #005 – Reflecting on the world right now…

Throughout March, we’ve been shocked to see the situation in Ukraine escalating, and our heart goes out to all those affected. We’ve put together information on how the conflict is impacting individuals with disabilities. 🇺🇦

Of course, March has also been IDD awareness month. We want to continue raising awareness beyond March, and invite you to continue with us!

UKRAINE UPDATE

What’s the situation for individuals with disabilities in Ukraine?

There are around 2.7 million individuals in Ukraine who are living with disabilities. While nearly 4 million have already fled due to the Russian invasion, for those with disabilities, it’s especially hard to get to safety. Here we share resources and fundraisers for you to support.
