Ukraine has been at war for more than a month: destroying buildings, killing people, and forcing them to move and evacuate - no matter where. Not only people are suffering, institutions and buildings are also devastated. Russian missiles and bombs often target educational facilities, among others - Ukrainian agricultural universities and colleges.
Many buildings were destroyed. Those that are not hit, became shelters for students and teachers, both their own and refugees from other regions. We know that we'll revive the destroyed buildings after our victory. But partly destroyed, hit and other colleges need help. We have a humanitarian crisis due to internal evacuation: students and teachers of agricultural universities and colleges of the South, East, Center and North are forced to leave their homes and work to move to safer areas of Western Ukraine. With no clothes, with no food, sometimes - without everything, because they lost their homes due to shelling and occupation.
Many colleges do not have electricity, heating and water - especially in Chernihiv, Kyiv, Sumy, Kharkiv, Luhansk, Donetsk, Zaporizhia, Kherson and Mykolaiv regions. Despite this, students want to continue their studies - to be the future of the Ukrainian agricultural sector and for the sake of global food security.
