An effort to change the odds in the face of war

The war in Ukraine is affecting us all, and feeling helpless in the face of destruction, freezing instead of fighting, flight instead of action is a very human response.

Refugees by the hundreds of thousands are making their way out of Ukraine in order to escape the atrocities going on, most of them women and children. Once they have crossed the border to Poland, they are still not safe. Criminals are exploiting the situation both with regards to human trafficking and other criminal efforts.

This is a humanitarian catastrophe happening as we are all watching.

Still, some brave people are taking action, even in the face of overwhelming odds.


Maarten van Slooten

It started out as a single trip to help relatives.

Maarten van Slooten drove his car to Poland to pick up relatives that had fled Ukraine by train.

This first trip went well, and he is preparing for more trips. In Sweden, the refugees get help contacting local authorities to apply for asylum.

Now, in dire need of funding to continue the effort, we have created this fundraiser so that he may expand the operation, bringing supplies to the ones in need, and also bringing people to safety.

The goal is to:

  • Rent a larger car (mini bus or bus) or multiple, allowing to bring larger groups to safety than with a single small car
  • Buy fuel & ferry tickets and accommodations on the way
  • Buy needed amenities, clothes, food, and other commodities needed for those who come with nothing but the clothes they are wearing

Life is precious.

Please help us bring people to safety.
