Yesterday, Russia Attacked Ukraine’s Largest Children’s Hospital. Here’s How You Can Help

Russia’s relentless destruction of Ukraine and its people has left many of us feeling helpless, wanting to lend a hand but unsure how. If you’ve been asking yourself “How can I help Ukraine?” then this article is for you.

On Monday, July 8th, Russia struck cities across Ukraine, including the Ohmatdyt Children’s Hospital in Kyiv, the country’s largest children’s medical center. As a result of the attacks on Kyiv, 27 people have been killed, including 4 children, and 117 are injured. Subsequent deadly strikes occurred across the country, with 10 killed and 47 injured in Kryvyi Rih, 1 killed and 12 injured in Dnipro, and 3 killed in Pokrovsk.

Initial footage of the attack on the children’s hospital shows deliberate targeting by Russia using a long-range cruise missile. Around 10:00 am on Monday morning, Russia launched more than 40 missiles into Ukraine, the majority of which were intercepted by Ukrainian air defense.

Momentarily, people came to help, rushing to aid the recuse operations, clearing rubble and bringing fresh drinking water to the site of the bombing. Those who couldn’t help in person, started to donate en masse.

Perhaps, you yourself were reading the news yesterday, with an uneasy knot in your stomach. And perhaps you asked yourself the question: how can I help Ukraine?
