More than a million people have fled their homes to escape conflict in Ukraine. Leaving behind jobs, belongings and loved ones, they now face an uncertain future.
Intense conflict in Ukraine is threatening the lives and livelihoods of civilians across the country. Families have been separated. People have been injured. Lives have been lost.
Homes have been destroyed or are unsafe to live in. Critical infrastructure such as health facilities, water supplies and schools have also been damaged or destroyed.
At Ukraine’s borders with Poland, Romania, Hungary, Slovakia and Moldova, huge numbers of people are arriving with only what they can carry. In many places there are long waits to cross and scant facilities waiting for them on the other side, with temperatures dropping below freezing overnight.
DEC charities are in Ukraine and neighbouring countries meeting the needs of all refugees and displaced people:
- £30 could provide essential hygiene supplies for three people for one month
- £50 could provide blankets for four families
Join us to hear from Madeleine Abbas, one of the UK’s leading health and safety lawyers. Madeleine will be providing an insightful update on the incoming Building Safety Bill and the implications to industry and duty holders.
We will also hear from Kate Walker of the Diabetes Safety Organisation as we learn of the number of people
affected by diabetes, how many people are diagnosed with diabetes and what businesses can do from an organisational and individual perspective to assist with managing Diabetes.
Join us at 2pm on 1st March at the Elm Bank Conference Centre.
