Help for Ukraine Appeal Fund


Charity Excellence Framework

Help For Ukraine Appeal Fund is a UK registered Charity, which was set up to help women and children affected by the conflict in Ukraine.

We aim to raise money to support those persons affected by the conflict in Ukraine, in particular women and children, and will look to support people in Ukraine, Poland and the UK. 

Founded by Lee Ellerker one of our first projects was to give ukraine orphan support for disabled Ukrainian children in Torun, Poland. The polish authorities provide very basic needs, but places like this need a lot more support and the big charities have so far provided no support. We are now supporting the Ukraine charity Miracle Today that provide great support in Chernihiv, Ukraine including elderly people, disabled and school children. We also support the charity Modern Village and Town in Cherkasy. We have also provided laptops for children in the Hull and East Yorkshire Ukrainian Community.


The three trustees are:

Lee Ellerker - former UN Peacekeeping soldier and has already made a number of humanitarian aid trips to support Ukrainians

Andrzej Frygier - Polish Doctor working in Haematology Hull University Teaching Hospitals for the last 10 years with many contacts in Poland to help direct where aid is needed

Shaun Willox - Qualified Accountant with many years experience of dealing with Charities and now has a Ukrainian family living at his home

Also involved Maryna Lupko - Ukrainian Lawyer, now based in UK via the Homes for Ukraine Scheme

We aim to use 100% of funding to provide aid, there are no running expenses for the Charity.
