Dear friends, members, and colleagues
It is difficult to find the right words after what we have witnessed in the last few days with the violent and terrible attack of Russia against Ukraine and the rupture of peace across Europe.
Our hearts and thoughts are with Ukraine and its incredible brave people. We as EVECCS are a European society and community of people from all different places in Europe, working and being together as one and we need to stay together even more in situations like this. We can’t stay still in front of what is happening.
EVECCS society is supporting different associations that are in the front line helping Ukrainians people and animals in need in this terrible period and we will continue to do so as necessary.
We recognize that many in the ECVECC community are looking for ways to help and may wish to support the courageous people of Ukraine and the ones offering help and shelter to the animals caught up in this conflict. For this reason we have included a list of organisations:
1. IFAW: https://www.ifaw.org/eu/news/emergency-aid-ukraine
2. OIPA: https://www.oipa.org/international/ukraine-emergency-also-for-animals
Stay safe and let’s hope that peace will soon be restored.
Chiara Valtolina, EVECCS president, and the EVECCS general board
