How LifeStraw Is Responding To The Refugee Crisis In Ukraine

March 07, 22

LifeStraw is actively working with our colleagues, partners, and distributors in Europe to monitor and respond to the growing refugee crisis, with safe water and other critical needs. To date, LifeStraw has shipped 16,225 filters and purifiers, to reach over 22,000 people with safe drinking water—both to displaced people within Ukraine and refugees in neighboring countries. Thousands more filters have been delivered by our local distributors. We are working with a number of other organizations to organize additional shipments.

We also continue to support refugee crises across the globe, including in these same parts of Europe that have been reluctant to welcome, and have often violently blocked, non-white refugees from the Middle East and Africa. We condemn the blatant racism demonstrated by officials and the reports of Indians and Africans being pushed from queues and trains while trying to escape Ukraine. We believe everyone deserves safe refuge and safe water, no matter their skin color or their nationality. 

We will continue to update this blog as more information becomes available and more shipments go out.

If you would like to help us get safe water to more people impacted by the war, please consider donating100% of donations go towards the cost of manufacturing the filters; LifeStraw does not profit from your donation.
