Thank You For Your Support
Thank you so much for your recent kind donation to the urgent appeal to help Ukrainian Coeliacs.
Last week, the Coeliac Society of Ireland called on Ireland’s coeliac community to respond to an urgent appeal from Olga Naumova the president of the Ukrainian Celiac Society.
We set an initial target of €5,000. This was achieved within the first 24 hours and we are grateful for this quick action. In response to this action, we raised the target to €10,000 which was smashed within 48 hours! We were astounded to see such swift and generous responses to this appeal. Based on such generosity and support we increased the target to €15,000 and in less than a week over €15,000 has been raised for our Ukrainian colleagues. We are very grateful for your generosity and swift response to this appeal. We will be transferring these funds immediately.
So where will the money raised go?
These funds are being sent to the Association of European Coeliac Societies who will then send your funds directly to:
- Arrange and deliver gluten-free food to the coeliacs remaining in Ukraine
- Arrange and deliver gluten-free food to coeliac refugees in those countries that are welcoming them through cooperation with NGOs on the ground.
- Provide Ukrainian coeliac refugees with counselling and gathering events in host countries that can support their trauma recovery (particularly for children) and social integration in the hosting countries.
Thank you again for your donation and support.
