A new place, a little bit of hope, but no money.
After fleeing the Ukrainian war, most families arrive with only the clothes on their backs, the few belongings they were able to gather before escaping with their children and their life savings in hryvnia. Due to the current situation, most places do not accept the hryvnia, whether for currency exchange or by card.
While the governments and central banks work out a solution, those families have no money to feed their families.
Stand Up Ukraine will issue a debit card to refugees families pre-loaded with €250 available for purchases at grocery stores, bakeries, pharmacies and most first necessities stores.
