Fundraising for KIWI K.A.R.E UKRAINE - Kiwi Aid & Refugee Evacuation

Invercargill, Southland

One year ago, on the morning of February 24th, Russia started an aggressive invasion of Ukraine, and for 12 months now Ukraine has fiercely defended its independency and freedom.

Schools, hospitals, homes bombed to pieces, families torn apart, children left without parents, people left with lifelong disabilities; the destruction caused to infrastracture is massive, the loss and trauma caused to people unfathomable.

It’s where one can witness the worst of humanity

– and the best.

Kiwi KARE (Kiwi Aid and Refugee Evacuation) operates in Ukraine delivering food, sanitari products and nappies, medicine, medical equipment, trauma kits, defibrillators and evacuation services for internally displaced people from troubled areas.

On February 24th I will be spending 24 hours continuously walking the loop track on Bluff Hill, Invercargill, to raise money for Kiwi KARE and remind us all of the ongoing war in Ukraine and the dire need of solidarity and kindness in the world that often can be divided to so many different camps.

If you wish to support the cause, please donate – all donations go directly to Kiwi KARE.

If you are in or near Invercargill, come and join for a lap!

I’ll be starting at 10am on Friday the 24th and finishing 10 am on Saturday the 25th.

Up Topuni Track, down Millenium track and back along the coast. Approximately 2hrs +- 30min.

Dressing up in yellow and blue encouraged!

Let’s show the good side of humanity.

Please see Facebook event page for more details.

Latest update

Thank you  1 April 2023

It's been more than a month since the fundraiser but the kindness and generosity of people keeps leaving me in awe. You've donated nearly $3400 altogether which is absolutely incredible and I can not thank you all enough for showing solidarity and making this world a bit better a place through your kindness and selfless acts.

Tenby and his team at Kiwi KARE keep on working hard in Ukraine supporting and helping the people who are living through the nightmare that this war is.

It brings light to the darkness knowing that a year on people still care and keep on standing with Ukraine - and we must keep on doing so.

So thank you once again.

Dear Hanni. This donation is from my dearest Mum. She doesn't 'do' the interwebby thing, so she asked me to make this donation on her behalf. Not just for your 'special cause' (as Mum already donates to charities -including humanitarian relief work in the Ukraine, within her means). But, also, out of gratitude and respect for giving me a big boost to help me keep on being me through your lovely, kind actions and words and your beautiful soul. We wanted to 'push' your fabulous fundraising feat (as opposed to the 'sore feet', the day afterwards!) over the $3 K mark. May the FORCE always be with/strong in you. Cheers. David :-).

Oh David, you've left me speechless. Big thanks from the bottom of my heart to your mother, thank you for knocking this over that $3000 mark, I'm absolutely blown away and so humbled by the generosity of all of you people making this happen. Your encouraging words have also truly inspired me to to think of other ways of how I can help and make a little difference in this world so thank you so much, and keep on doing you - you are leaving your mark on this planet. :) H
