Ukraine Needs You

After 8 years of russian aggression against Ukraine, on Feb 24th, 2022 Ukrainian civilians once again awoke to the engines of war rolling across their border. The Russian Federation waging an unjust war against the peaceful people of Ukraine. Millions of refugees. Thousands are dead. Countless cities and historical sites are destroyed. This is an extremely frightening time for the people of Ukraine and the world at large. War on European soil harks back to a time of horror and geopolitical imperialism not seen since World War Two. And it cannot be allowed to win.

Aotearoa New Zealand has always stood as a staunch defender of life, peace, democracy, and international law. While Ukraine may be far from our shores, this is not a problem we Kiwis can afford to ignore. Beyond the numerous humanitarian, economic, political, geopolitical, ideological, and other implications for the international community, including us here in the Pacific, the impact of this horrific war is already evident in our own backyard. Ukrainians, Russians, Belarusians, and others affected by the russian agression live and work right beside us in New Zealand. They develop software, build wind turbines, work in supermarkets, and design and construct buildings. This war affects our loved ones, friends, and colleagues. We are your whānau. We watch as our own people suffer, both as victims and as perpetrators. New Zealand cannot simply watch. We must act immediately to do our part in stopping Putin, saving our Ukrainian whānau, and protecting Europe and the civilised world at large from tyranny and imperialism.

We are doing the Mahi for Ukraine, and this site shows you how to get help and how YOU can help too. 

We are a dedicated advocacy group based in Auckland, NZ, powered entirely by volunteers. Mahi for Ukraine cause does not have any ongoing funding. With strong connections throughout the Ukrainian New Zealand community, we collaborate closely with various Ukrainian and Kiwi community groups, organisations, and individuals, both locally and globally. If you’re also committed to supporting Ukraine, we’d love to connect and work together.               If you are doing the mahi for Ukraine anywhere in NZ, let’s chat!
