People for People, Picnic, Kennis delivered hygiene products, of which a total value is €75K, to Moldova for Peace.
Moldova for Peace is supporting evacuated Ukrainians in Moldova with shelter, safety, food, other basic needs, and of course hygiene products. Movement On The Ground is a partner organization working with Moldova for Peace to make this transport possible. This week we received confirmation that humanitarian aid arrives and people affected by the war in Ukraine will get the products they need as soon as possible.
People for People donated €10K forMovement on the Ground to support their activities with Ukrainian minors in Poland
“Movement on the Ground has lots of experience working in such circumstances, like the great work they have been doing in Lesbos. For us, that makes MOTG a trusted partner. We can help them with our network of business, volunteers, and donations to enable them to do great work. When Lonneke shared that we’re going to focus on the Ukraine crisis, we immediately asked how we could be of help.” - said Jesse van der Meulen, foundation director.
One of the initiatives that MOTG currently undertakes is supporting Ukrainian children in need in Northern Poland. The war forced orphanages to relocate and look for a safe place for children. As a result, 121 orphans, all under 18 years old, and 9 caretakers are now in Poland trying to rebuild an everyday life. We believe that dignified living conditions and the opportunity to learn, play and interact with each other during the day can help these children thrive. That’s why we donated €10K for furniture for building a playground. And we will continue our cooperation because kids should be safe and happy!
We are proud to share People for People Jobs: a platform for people affected by the Ukrainian war who are looking for a job.
With the war in Ukraine ongoing, we aim to get as many people to safety as possible. One of our most impactful initiatives is to make meaningful introductions throughout our community of organizations seeking to support people in need with – and during their job search.
We periodically send open vacancies and information about offline events that we are planning with our trusted partners around employment (matchmaking events & others).

We help our foundation partners to find volunteers to join their organizations and increase their impact.
