A visual poem about home

What would you take?

Every day, behind the headlines, people caught up in the war in Ukraine face impossible choices. Stay or go. Fight or flee. Take or leave.

Two Ukrainian artists – poet Serhiy Zhadan and actor Ivantiy Novak – give voice to these experiences, the homes people have left and the memories they carry.

What is happening in Ukraine?

On February 24, 2022, Russia launched a military operation in Ukraine. The conflict has forced more than 14 million people to leave their homes.

ShelterBox has been getting aid to people in Ukraine and neighbouring countries since March, but now there’s a new threat.

Ukrainian winters are harsh and unforgiving. Temperatures plummet as low as -8°C, and blackouts could leave homes in the dark and freezing cold.

We’re sending tools, shelter materials, blankets and solar lights, to help families repair their homes and survive the winter.

Ukraine crisis explained

We have been looking for the right charitable partner to support for some time, but when we came across ShelterBox we knew immediately it was the perfect fit. We were blown away with the incredible work ShelterBox do, responding to international disasters where families have sadly lost their homes and possessions overnight.

They provide emergency shelter and essential supplies to those who have been impacted. LH1 Global is a property company who ultimately provide homes, so, to be in a position to support those who have lost their homes means a great deal to us. ShelterBox have a saying ‘where there’s a home there’s hope’ and that really resonates with us. We are extremely excited about the future with ShelterBox.
