Now accepting Ukrainian IDs, bunq helps open 500 more bank accounts for those in the war zone

Laptops have been delivered to support schooling for Ukrainian children 

People for People  has been able to provide laptops to a local Ukrainian foundation that supports homeschooling for Ukrainian children. Now more children can continue their education in safety.

Highly requested medical supplies are being delivered to Kiev

The first shipment of medical supplies is on its way to Ukraine. The shipment will go to support the National Military Medical Clinical Center in Kiev.

About People for People

People for People Foundation is a growing entrepreneurial movement joining forces to get as many people affected by the Ukrainian war to safety as possible. We match people and foundations in need with companies that can fulfill these needs. We enable organizations such as Movement On The Ground, Takecarebnb, OpenEmbassy, FastLaneUkraine, On My Way UA, Netherlands for Ukraine and Lifeline Ukraine to increase their impact.

To maximize the positive impact of our initiative, foundation 'Stichting People for People' was founded by Joris Beckers (Picnic), Robert Vis (Messagebird) and Ali Niknam (bunq). Pieter Jan Krevel and Jesse van der Meulen (Aimforthemoon) have been appointed as co-directors of the foundation. A team of 50+ volunteers have joined the organization so far to support our mission.

After already receiving thousands of requests for help, we continuously identify the most urgent issues to help people and foundations in Ukraine, neighboring countries and those who arrive in the Netherlands.
