Update 28. 02. 2022, 14. 00
Ladies and Gentlemen,
An Animal shelter from Kharkiv asks us for help. Their situation is dramatic. They don’t have any animal feed. Due to the ongoing fighting, the shops are closed. Sometimes there is also a lack of water. You can hear shots and bomb explosions. We offered to evacuate the animals to Poland, but as long as the city is under fire, evacuation is impossible. Nevertheless, we are determined to help them as much as possible. We are launching an urgent fundraising campaign for the purchase and supply of food for their animals and possible evacuations if the situation in the city permits.
Below we enclose the SMS correspondence with the Animal Shelter in Kharkiv and also the English translation:

Benek Foundation: Hello, this is Maria from the Polish animal asylum “Benek Foundation. ” We want to help you if you need support in this difficult situation. We can bring your pets to a safe place in Poland or collect funds and send them to you. Let me know what you need. Take care. Maria

Kharkiv Animal Shelter: Thank you.

Benek Foundation: Let us know if you need to evacuate your pets. We can transport them to Poland even during the war.

Kharkiv Animal Shelter: The city is under fire. Evacuation is not possible at the moment.

Benek Foundation: Can we help you in any way?

Kharkiv Animal Shelter: We need food for the animals. 13 bags a day. We can’t buy it. Shops are closed. And there is no money for the payments.

Benek Foundation: We will help you. If you can, please send us an official e-mail. Describe the situation, write what you need. We’ll organize help in a few days.

If you want and can help, please donate entitled “Food for dogs from Kharkiv”

We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all your help!

Ladies and Gentlemen,

An unimaginable drama of people and animals is unfolding before our eyes. The war we are experiencing is taking a terrible toll, taking homes, health, and many lives. Thousands of people are fleeing from aggression and seeking refuge in Poland. Thousands of animals need our help. We’ve been at the Hrebenne border crossing

for hours. We have come there with the gifts you have given us. We brought food for adults and children, bandages, and hygiene products. We brought water, clothes, blankets, animal feed. We help people and animals. We give them away what we have, and buy locally the things that are still needed. We organize transport to places that we have already prepared to allocate these people and their animals. We also organize transport from Ukraine to Poland.

We do our best to help everyone. But for that, we need help from you. They need you – People and animals for whom life has become a living hell. Poland has simplified the procedures for transporting animals across the border so that we can help hundreds of them, but we urgently need your support. The costs are enormous – paying drivers, fuel, and even buying essential items is expensive. We ask for your support with all our hearts, these people and animals need us like never before.

If you can take in refugees, if you want to give a pet a temporary or permanent home, or you can help with the transport – please contact us immediately: Michał 506,349,596, Bartek 691,429,070

We are constantly collecting in our Center in “Szewce” donations and goods for the people on the border. You can send them to us or deliver them directly to the border crossing.

A big THANK YOU for all your support.
Your help makes a big difference.
