Key Resources for Supporting Ukraine 1st March 2022 | IN INDUSTRY NEWS & BUSINESS | BY SBID

Our hearts are broken by the war and conflict in Ukraine. While we are thousands of miles away from the devastation, there are still effective ways we can help the communities affected by this ongoing crisis.

The Society of British and International Interior Design (SBID), together with its international team in Ukraine, has collated a list of online resources, donation funds, charities and initiatives aiming to support the humanitarian efforts during this time. Hear from Julia Danilova of SBID Ukraine on the impact of the invasion and what we can do to support.

We invite our community to donate and continue spreading awareness of these important organisations and information to aid Ukraine in its time of need.
