Everybody has been moved by the atrocity of war and the plight of the Ukrainian people. However, from all over the world, humanity and solidarity are being displayed in equal measures, and people are doing whatever they can to help.
Brush-Baby has donated toothpastes, teethers and toothbrushes to the cause via a local charity collection point based in our home town of Alresford in Hampshire. Dominique - MD of Brush-Baby is pictured here with some of the boxes of donated products this afternoon (Thurs 3rd March), which will be on the road tonight heading towards Ukraine.
She speaks for all of us at Brush-Baby when she says "watching the images on our TV screens and listening to the commentary of the unfolding situation in Ukraine is distressing. To be displaced from your home and loved ones at a moment's notice with limited time to take items with you, is unimaginable. Mothers with babies, toddlers and small children are desperately trying to stay strong for their families and instil some form of normality into their children's nomadic existence and a constantly evolving situation. We hope that our donation of dental-care products will go towards this for some families."
