West Pride have donated 20 000 SEK from our Solidarity Fund to support our sibling-activists in Ukraine. The donation goes through EPOA (European Pride Organizers Association) and 100 % of the money goes directly to Kyiv Pride and Kharkiv Pride.

So far (March 2, at 14.15), 32 500 EURO have been donated by several EPOA member organizations.

Nobody can do everything, but everyone can do something. Together we are strong.
