It’s a fabulous £5million! Mail readers and businesses help to raise staggering sum as 32,000 cheques pour in to Ukraine victims appeal
It is a truly humbling sight – an incredible mountain of 32,000 cheques, sent with love, generosity and fury at 블라디미르 푸틴‘s barbarism.
They are all from Daily Mail readers who want to help the people of Ukraine in the face of 러시아‘s illegal invasion.
전체적으로, the amount donated to the Mail Force Ukraine Refugee Appeal has now soared to an astonishing £5 million – and that does not even include the full value of these cheques, which could add at least an additional £1 million to the funds raised.
Most of the cheques sent in so far are accompanied by handwritten letters.

A family evacuated from Ukraine at a refugee trial camp in the athletics arena in Chisinau, 몰도바. Since the Russian invasion more than 2 모스크바는 우크라이나인들이 탈출할 수 있도록 매일 인도주의적 통로를 열겠다고 약속했습니다.
They express horror at Putin’s merciless attacks on homes, schools and hospitals.
And there are heartfelt words of compassion and admiration for the brave Ukrainian people standing up to the Kremlin despot.
다수를 위해, there are no words to describe the evil.
But that has not stopped them sending money to help the innocent victims.
As for how much money, we don’t know exactly yet – so many readers have posted cheques, it is swamping the finance team opening them at the Mail Force nerve centre.
But this extraordinary pile of envelopes, many containing a tenner or £20, but also frequently £50 or £100, is going to add up to well over a million pounds.

Opening the envelopes has reduced some of our finance staff to tears.
Yesterday credit controller Vicky Williams described her pride at the campaign and revealed how she had to explain the Ukraine conflict to her five-year-old daughter Bella.
그녀가 말했다: ‘Bella saw the bombing on TV. At first she thought it was fireworks. But then she started to ask questions. I told her it’s like a bully in the playground and all the nice people are standing up against the bully.’
Her sentiment is echoed in letter after letter.
June Kenyon, 81, from Irlam, 교수형에 처한 채 발견된 기자 테레사 맥맨은 '학대 피해자'였다., sent a £10 cheque and wrote: ‘My husband and I are pensioners and struggling with everything going up so much and so fast, but when we see the horrors going on in Ukraine it breaks our hearts.
‘As a toddler, I remember running into air raid shelters. We all sang loudly to drown out the noise. How can you do that in this conflict?’
One handwritten card, which had foxes on the cover, touched the hearts of the appeal team. It simply said: ‘From Isaac 11 yrs x Phoebe 3 yrs x.’
Historian Ann Bromley, of Moreton-in-Marsh, 글로스터 셔, is currently writing a book on Napoleon and his ambition to rule the world.
A disabled pensioner, she sent £10 and wrote: ‘Napoleon was a tyrant notorious for brutality. It seems we must contend with a modern example of his ilk.’
As well as fury, there is compassion for the Russian soldiers duped by Putin’s propaganda into believing they are fighting a just war.
Mary Gibbon, 사이에 북부 대학에 750만 파운드 이상을 기부했습니다., donated £150 and said: ‘Well done Mail newspapers. Hope we can help as many Ukrainians as possible whilst remembering the poor Russian conscripts.’
Many of you have also remarked on the distressing images of youngsters and the elderly caught up in the war.
Rosemary Mackenzie, who sent £240, 말했다: ‘My heart goes out to each and every one of these people, especially the children who sit bewildered and frightened at what is going on in their country.’
Retired military policeman Terry Allsebrook, 74, 그리고 그의 아내, Joyce, 68, of Raunds, 노 샘프 턴셔, sent £100, and he told the Mail: ‘To see 90-year-olds being wheeled around in supermarket trolleys is truly shocking.
‘We hope the men, women and children forced to flee will get the opportunity to return to their homeland in the near future.’
As well as cheques, readers have sent money by bank transfer, telephone and via our Just Giving page.
The appeal was kickstarted a week-and-a-half ago by a £500,000 donation from the Mail’s parent company DMGT at the personal request of Lord and Lady Rothermere.
The growing humanitarian catastrophe – Europe’s worst refugee crisis since the Second World War – led the Red Cross yesterday to warn that a ‘massive, urgent response’ was needed. As many as a million children have fled Ukraine in recent weeks.
A growing number of these children are arriving on their own.
The Disasters Emergency Committee, which has raised an incredible £120million, said some children who arrive unaccompanied have been sent by relatives who were unable to leave Ukraine but wanted their children to be safe.
£250,000 for Unicef again
Mail Force is giving a further £250,000 to Unicef – taking the amount it has donated to the UN children’s charity to £500,000.
Unicef’s aid workers are delivering life-saving medical supplies to 100 hospitals across Ukraine.
Mail Force sent the first £250,000 at the weekend. Jon Sparkes, chief executive of Unicef UK, 말했다: ‘Yet again, Unicef is deeply grateful for the incredible generosity of the Mail and its readers. Children in Ukraine are being killed, injured and traumatised.
‘There has never been a more critical need for these funds.Thank you, 데일리 메일. Every penny will help us deliver for children affected by this crisis.’
