Portman Dental Care stands united with the people of Ukraine
Here at Portman, we know that everyone in our community, both colleagues and patients, shares our concern and worry at the events that have unfolded in Ukraine. The impact of the situation has been far reaching and continues to escalate and affect more and more people.
We want to extend our support to all of those affected, so as part of our work to support Ukraine, we have joined a charitable fund whereby we will match all funds raised by our dentists, colleagues and patients up to £50,000.
The charity we have chosen to support is the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) registered Charity No. 1062638. This group is made up of 15 member charities who are experts in humanitarian aid and specialise in different areas of disaster response. They come together to speak in one voice and make fundraising more efficient when a crisis happens.
We are asking everyone to support this cause and if you are in a position to contribute, please follow this link - any donation is greatly appreciated as we look to reach our goal of £50,000 as soon as we can.
From everyone at Portman, a great big thank you.
How your donation could help:
£30 donated could provide essential hygiene supplies for three people for one month
£50 donated could provide blankets for four families
£100 donated could provide emergency food for two families for one month
Intense conflict in Ukraine is threatening the lives and livelihoods of civilians across the country, causing hundreds of thousands to flee. Homes have been destroyed or are unsafe to live in. Essential services have been hit. Families have been separated. People have been injured. Lives have been lost. DEC charities and their local partners are in Ukraine and across the border in the neighbouring countries. They are working to meet the immediate needs of all people fleeing with food, water, medical assistance, protection and trauma care.
