The Rotary Club in Dronfield, Derbyshire, welcomed Ukrainian refugee families at an event with face painting, magic, and free SIMs supplied by Vodafone's everyone.connected campaign.
Being connected is something most of us take for granted these days, but for the people of Ukraine who have been forced to leave their homes, friends and families, it’s a lifeline.
Thanks to many Brits offering up their spare rooms, Ukrainians are able to start new lives in this country. Charities are also doing their part to support them. One such – the Dronfield Rotary Club, based just south of Sheffield, Derbyshire – put on a welcome event for both the hosts and their guests to have fun and make new connections.
It is one of over 1,600 charities that have signed up to Vodafone’s charities.connected initiative, part of the company’s everyone.connected campaign. Refugees and other vulnerable people are offered free SIMs loaded with 20GB of data to help children and their families stay in touch with loved ones around the world.
