In March 2022, as part of the joint project of Shakhtar Social, EFDN, and Legia Foundation (Warsaw), they launched a campaign in support of Ukraine and its people. Within a month, European clubs have collected essential goods for internally displaced persons (IDPs) from different regions of Ukraine.
So far, they have collected more than nine tons of humanitarian goods from seven countries. The aid includes mattresses, pillows, blankets, sleeping bags, clothes, food, medicines, water, and baby food.
We would like to express our gratitude for assistance to our country at the tough time to:

Shakthar Social Foundation
The world was shocked by the war that Russia started in Ukraine.
Millions of people have fled their home to find a safe haven somewhere in Ukraine or within other countries in Europe.
Within a few days after the start of the war, FC Shakhtar Donetsk was starting a new refugee enter in the stadium of Lviv in western Ukraine and reached out for help to the European Football for Development Network in raising materials, goods and supplies to help the refugees in the refugee center.
I’m really happy that a lot of clubs within the European Football for Development Network and outside of the network have started to collect goods and brought the materials to either our office in Breda or to the stadium of Legia Warsaw in Poland.
We’re really happy that people have started to collect goods all over Europe and helped us to get our football for peace initiative on the way.
With the first truck now delivered in Lviv and still a lot of materials to come.
I would like to thank FC Shakhtar Donetsk, FC Legia Warsaw and all members from the European Football for Development Network to support this initiative and we will continue to do so.
