Coming Together

I am not an expert on war or politics and will leave others to draw up scenarios of how this conflict could end. But we could come to a solution quicker and alleviate suffering by coming together. It is not the responsibility of governments alone nor non-profit organizations to support those who have lost their homes and need medical supplies.

Silver Linings

Tech has brought help to Ukraine in different ways. Mykhailo Fedorov, Ukraine’s Minister of Digital Transformation, has been using Twitter to enlist support for his country. As the nation’s youngest minister at thirty-one years old, he tweeted Elon Musk, the SpaceX billionaire, to help Ukrainians stay online. Musk promptly sent Starlink terminals in response. The Ukrainian government has raised more than $50 million in crypto donations, more than ten times that of traditional funds so far.

How Communities are Built

Individuals are opening their homes and hearts to those in need, from providing shelter and food to helping to transport people. While we may not be positioned to support the same way, there are other ways to contribute.
