BPW International Help for Ukraine - Update

BPW International is very concerned about the war in Ukraine. 

We have an Affiliate Club in Ukraine, BPW Chernihiv

With the fundraising campaign of BPW International we want to organize help for our club and for women and children refugees.

In doing so, we will see if we can have relief supplies transported. We ask you to report to the President's office information about existing and reliable transport possibilities known to you. In any case, the collected money will benefit the club members in Chernihiv and women and children refugees.

We ask for your solidarity and your donation, should it be possible for you. Thank you very much.

We will continue to inform you about this charity action on our website.

Dr. Catherine Bosshart, BPW International President 2021-2024

Update from March 3, 2022 - Letter from BPW International President

Dear Federation Presidents and Affiliate Club Presidents,

We all are shocked about the war in Ukraine and would like to help. I have prepared a link on the international website [see above] to give donations mostly for refugees who are in various countries. If you would like to donate, please do it through this website. This morning the link which Saferpay gave us created rejections from the credit card providers. We are repairing this as quickly as possible.

You have three options:

  1. BPW Federations or Affiliate Clubs prepare a project on how to help the Ukrainian refugees in their countries in a sustainable manner (from distribution of goods to skill building, language lessons, support in childcare etc). The projects need to be sent to BPW International with a budget and a description as quickly as possible (presidents.office@bpw-international.org). We, the Executive Board, will look at these projects and allocate the money to those Federations and Affiliate Clubs. BPW International needs to have lists of how this money was allocated and who was responsible for the distribution.
  2. Part of the money which we receive goes directly to the Ukraine to an institution which is already providing refugees with shelter on the way to the borders with its neighbouring countries. 
  3. You will do a project out of your own means e.g. you are responsible for the money collection in your country and for the distribution. 

Now is the time when BPW International has to stand, to work and to act together. Only as a united organization and sisterhood will we be strong.  Help in the context of your own country and support International to take action where it is needed.

I am grateful for everyone who helps the Ukrainian refugees and our Club in Chernihiv (Ukraine).

Warm regards, 

Dr. Catherine Bosshart, BPW International President 2021-2024

    At BPWUK we are looking at ways to assist our BPW Sisters.
    We have informed our members and we have asked them to maintain the pressure on Governments to assist not only Ukraine but also the surrounding countries to help refugees.
