Profits made from the T-shirt sale will go towards UNICEF’s appeal for Ukrainian children. https://unicef.is/ukraina UNICEF kallar eftir tafarlausu vopnahléi í Úkraínu og krefst þess að virtar séu alþjóðlegar skuldbindingar um að vernda börn og tryggja mannúðarstofnunum öruggt aðgengi að börnum í neyð. UNICEF krefst þess að stríðandi fylkingar grípi alls ekki til árása á mikilvæga innviði sem börn og saklausir borgarar reiða sig á. Hvort heldur sem um er að ræða vatnsveitur, heilbrigðisstofnanir eða skóla.
Sýnum íbúum Úkraínu að þau eru ekki ein. UNICEF á Íslandi hefur hafið neyðarsöfnun vegna umfangsmikilla verkefna UNICEF, Barnahjálpar Sameinuðu þjóðanna, í Úkraínu þar sem börn og fjölskyldur þurfa tafarlausa aðstoð. Vopnuð átök ógna nú lífi og velferð milljóna barna.UNICEF hefur um árabil verið að störfum á ófriðartímum í austurhluta Úkraínu og er á vettvangi að tryggja hreint vatn, heilbrigðisþjónustu, skólagögn, menntun, félagslega sálfræðiþjónustu og fjárhagsaðstoð.
UNICEF calls for an immediate ceasefire in Ukraine and demands that international commitments be made to protect children and ensure humanitarian institutions safe access to children in need. UNICEF demands that warring factions do not at all attack important infrastructure on which children and innocent citizens rely. Whether it is water utilities, healthcare facilities or schools.
Let us show the people of Ukraine that they are not alone. UNICEF in Iceland has launched an emergency fundraiser for UNICEF’s extensive work in the United Nations, in which children and families need immediate assistance. Armed conflict now threatens the lives and well-being of millions of children. UNICEF has been active in years of war in the eastern part of Ukraine, providing clean water, health care, schooling, education, social psychological services and financial assistance.
For 2.5 weeks, brave Ukraine has been resisting the aggression of Russian President Vladimir Putin. Despite superior forces, the Russian army has so far failed to capture Kyiv and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. Iceland supports the Ukrainian people by sending humanitarian aid and welcoming refugees. On Sunday we meet at 13:00 to march from Skólavörðustígur 45 through the center of Reykjavik to the Russian Embassy at Túngata 24, where the rally will take place. Russians and Ukrainians living in Iceland, as well as representatives of other countries, will speak at the rally. They will share their ideas on how to help Ukraine, their experiences and the latest news from the war.
This Sunday, March 13, there will be a charity ART market where all profits will go to support the Ukrainian people.
The event is open to anyone who wants to support the Ukrainian people and hear discussions about the state of affairs in Ukraine today.
A discussion panel will be offered with Icelandic political scientists, historians, and people with direct experience of Putin’s rule.
We invite artists, craftsmen, designers, chefs, and EVERYONE who wants to participate.
