Ukrainian Refugee Center In Iceland
FlottaFólk provides assistance to Ukrainian citizens on their way to Iceland. We work in close relations with organizations at every European border of Ukraine. We help guide refugees at every step from your current location and onwards, until and after they arrive in Iceland.

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.

March of solidarity with Ukraine – Sunday 13.03

Последние 2,5 недели храбрая Украина противостоит агрессии президента России Владимира Путина. Несмотря на превосходящие силы российской армии не удаётся захватить Киев и президента Володимира Зеленського. Исландия поддерживает украинцев, отправляет гуманитарную помощь и принимает беженцев. Мы встречаемся в воскресенье в 13 часов и идём от Skólavörðustígur 45 через центр Рейкьявика до Российского посольства на Túngata 24, места протеста. Планируются выступления русских и украинцев, живущих в Исландии, а также представителей других стран. Они поделятся своим опытом, идеями о том, как помочь Украине и последними новостями с войны.
