Russia’s invasion of Ukraine on Feb 24th has left devastating impacts on Ukrainians and this whole act has sparked international outrage with countries imposing sanctions on Russia. At PoweredByPlant, we stand to support communities in need at a crucial period like this so we crafted a list of credible resources you can reliably donate to (list will continuously be updated).
