5 Simple Ways you can show support to Ukraine
We have all watched events unfold in Ukraine with horror & wondered what we can do to help.
Ukraine’s president Zelensky has described the United Kingdom as a ‘real & reliable’ friend with our nations support of his country during this crisis. So lets continue to do what we can as this crisis continues.
Few of us feel able to donate large sums of money to charities or physically provide any help, but there are some easy, cheep ways you can show support for the Ukrainian people at their time of need.
Here are 5 simple things you can do to show support to Ukraine.
- Display Sunflowers
Nothing is more symbolic of Ukraine than this vibrant yellow flower. Not only is the Sunflower the National Flower of this great nation but we are all appreciating now that Ukraine is one of the worlds largest supplier of sunflower seeds & oil & its supplies are now under extreme threat as the invasion rages on.
Display Sunflowers images to show your support to the people of Ukraine either in your window or outside of your schools, churches, community centres or work place.
You can also plant some sunflower seeds now in time for them to bloom to their full dizzy heights this summer.
Let’s cover our world in sunflowers!
