Donate for farm in Ukraine

Appeal for donations – Ukraine


It is difficult to find words in view of the current situation. These days, thousands of people are fleeing due to the war, especially from the embattled areas in the east and south of Ukraine and, of course, from Kyiv. The biodynamic farm in Potutory – located in a rural area in the West of Ukraine – immediately agreed to take in people and provide them with a safe place to stay and shelter on their way further west. The first of these “guests” have already arrived. Thus, food, heating, transport and an appropriate infrastructure must be provided.

  • With a one-off sum of 500 Swiss francs, 20 mattresses and blankets can be purchased.
  • With 420 Swiss francs, one refugee can be fed and cared for for a month, including heating; in the summer months this amount is reduced to half.
  • With 500 Swiss francs per month, Potutory can cover the additional organisational costs, i.e. staff for purchasing, kitchen, cleaning and management.
  • It would also be urgent to improve the current sanitary facilities, as the farm currently only has two simple dry toilets outside.
  • If sufficient donations are received, paid jobs can be created for the people.
