Donate to Ukraine
In 2008 ITLUS travelled to Ukraine for one of its foreign study tours. Members of ITLUS visited farms and farming industries in locations such as Kiev, Zaporizhzha and the grain port in Mykolaiv. Apart from providing a significant learning opportunity, the tour is remembered for the exceptional hospitality and very warm welcome received by the group from our Ukrainian hosts.
With this in mind, and as a mark of solidarity to the Ukrainian people this harvest time, ITLUS Council is running a ‘Grain for Ukraine’ appeal to help to support the work of the Red Cross in Ukraine. We are asking members and friends from farming and non-farming backgrounds to take part by donating the cash equivalent of a ton, half ton, or even a small bucket of grain – any amount will help. We have set an ambitious target of €5,000. To get the ball rolling, we have donated €1,000 to the cause.
