The war in Ukraine is a humanitarian crisis, we already have:
- thousands of deaths
- millions of refugees
People are dying, loosing their jobs, their savings, their opportunities for education and for health...
Many organisations and individuals are doing whatever they can to help, and I think that we can also use our skills in tech to help however we can.
I have seen multiple new initiatives that are looking for volunteers for technology. Contact them if you can help, or get inspired to create other solutions for specific problems:
They match Ukrainian refugees with European hosts.
They match Ukrainian job seekers with companies looking to help.
StandWithUkraine gathers & categorizes initiatives to support Ukrainians across the world and makes them available broadly.
Real ways you can help Ukraine as a foreigner: a crowdsourced information platform.
This is a project by fellow Development Hacker Sebastian Gil. He created a website to centralize all the info necessary to Ukrainian student refugees arriving in France (housing, food, phone, transport...). He needs help with SEO, scraping new ressources and finding partners. He says you can also use his work for other countries and causes. Learn more in his post below:
Maybe you can help with new features, or translating in new languages. I'm sure we can all do something, and the time to do it is now !
Let's see if we can use this community for something good :)
