Aiding People Fleeing Conflict

Delivering aid and transporting people to new beginnings

During the winter, we paused our trips due to driving risks and lack of host families in the UK. We focused on aiding Ukraine through transport of aid, ambulance conversion, and food service. We partnered with The Siobhan Trust who made pizzas and served hot drinks to needy Ukrainians with the help of volunteers.

Eden Aiding refugees


Two groups of friends from Penrith and Oxford have come together to do something real to help coordinate aid for Ukraine and help the displaced people of Ukraine


We gather medical provisions & essential supplies needed in the Ukraine and in the refugee centres in Poland or partner with other groups across the UK who have similarly gathered aid for Ukraine


We are then delivering that aid using locally donated and sometimes funded minibuses from the UK to the Polish border where logistics are in place to distribute it to Refugee Centres or onward into Ukraine directly to those in need


On each return journey we are then bringing displaced Ukrainians back to welcoming host families in the UK or to other secure rehoming networks elsewhere in Europe

We are a small group of friends from the Eden Valley near Penrith, moved by the plight experienced in Ukraine and have decided to raise money to help them cope with their challenges.

We are working with the Help Ukriane Center to coordinate deliveries of the most needed supplies such as medical equipment and dried foods.

Resettling Ukrainian refugees into welcoming countries

We have successfully relocated 27 people directly into safe host families, we are continuing to do this in conjunction with our deliveries to the Ukrainian border.
