The Crisis in Ukraine
The conflict in Ukraine has subjected the people of Ukraine and their animals to the terror of ongoing bombardments, summary executions, assaults, loss of loved ones, and cities and towns reduced to rubble. These actions have created a mass exodus of people who have lost any sense of safety that most of us take for granted. They are fleeing, trying to save their own lives, and the lives of family members, including their pets. The numbers are rising (now estimated to have reached 8 million refugees and internally displaced persons).
Constantly changing war zones and risk assessments as well as ongoing supply chain disruptions, are features of the evolving context of the situation in Ukraine. Such disasters attract many individuals and organizations who want to help. However, developing accurate information on what is needed, where, and when is a significant challenge in expediting the allocations and delivery of essential support. The U3R consortium partners are keenly aware of these challenges. We have developed a strategic plan to address these challenges with a coordinated but flexible response to the Ukraine conflict and ensure that donated resources reach those who need them most.
Why a consortium?
A consortium of implementing, intelligence, and resource partners is better able to respond to a changing environment and locations effectively and efficiently.
- Local implementing partners can assist locations with the most critical needs.
- Food, medical supplies, and other support can be efficiently directed to avoid under and over supplies.
- A diversity of local partners caring for different animal types allows the consortium to respond to more animals.
- Information about critical needs and locations can be centralized to provide a better distribution of resources, and broader coverage.
