Medical Aid for Belarusians in Ukraine

Belarusian Charitable Trust (BCT), a UK-registered charity, is appealing for donations for medical aid to support Belarusians in Ukraine.


Ukraine had a large Belarusian community before the start of the war on the 24 February 2022, including Belarusian refugees that had to flee from their own home country to escape the repressions of the Lukashenka regime. Belarusian volunteers in Ukraine are currently in need of some first aid medical products, which BCT is helping them to source in the UK.


We are working with several UK-based suppliers of first aid items. Some products have been sold out across Europe and are hard to source due to the high demand from charitable organisations working with Ukraine. Let's help to save Belarusian and Ukrainian lives together!


BCT account for donation purposes, which can be arranged via your employers with tax benefits (alternatively, use an annual tax return to reclaim part of the tax on the donated amount):


  • Account holder: Belarusian Charitable Trust Limited

  • Sort Code: 20-46-60

  • Account No: 60103446

  • Purpose: Medical Aid for Belarusians
