About the “Ukraine Humanitarian” Club
February 2022 saw the start of a large-scale military operation by Russian forces into Ukraine. Under the tense situation, attacks by the Russian army and fighting in urban areas have caused many civilian casualties. Many people, mainly children, women and the elderly, have sought refuge in neighboring countries to escape the fighting.
People around the world are standing up and governments are helping Ukraine. As Nudge Inc., we urgently launched the “Ukraine Humanitarian Aid” club to provide humanitarian assistance to people forced to evacuate in the frigid Eastern Europe through the Nudge system.
