Healing Hands Network charity appeals to beauty companies to donate vital supplies to those affected by the Ukraine crisis

Healing Hands Network has announced that it is now partnering with organisations to help with the current crisis in Ukraine and is seeking the assistance of beauty brands and industry distributors who can donate vital supplies.

A self-funding charity based in the UK, Healing Hands Network is made up of volunteer complementary and holistic therapists, who offer support to those suffering from the mental, physical, and emotional after-effects of war, as well as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). In addition to home initiatives, they are also active abroad, having worked in Bosnia for many years.

Healing Hands Network is a charity partner of Beauty Exhibitions Ltd, publisher of Guild News Magazine, and organiser of Beauty UK, Holistic Health, Hair UK, Scottish Hair & Beauty and Look Good Live events.

As a response to the conflict in Ukraine, the charity is now collecting essential healthcare items which are urgently needed, and beauty brands and suppliers may be able to help with them.

These include:

  • Latex/vinyl gloves - all sizes
  • Disinfectant - skin and surface
  • Antiseptic - skin and surface
  • Antiseptic cream
  • First Aid kits
  • Sterilising wipes
  • Paper roll 10" and 20"
  • Cotton wool
  • Gauze pads
  • Hygiene supplies - hand sanitizer gel, shampoos, conditioners, shower gels, deodorants, soaps, etc.

Donations can be sent to the Healing Hands Network charity registered address, and the team will then deliver the supplies to the transport centre.

From there, the items will be taken to the Polish border, as well as directly into Ukraine to Lviv, Kyiv, and Kharkiv, among other places. Transport occurs every week and the delivery process is personally supervised to ensure that it is distributed exactly where it is needed.

If your beauty company would like to help, donated items can be sent to:

Healing Hands Network, 151 Fillongley Road, Meriden, Coventry CV7 7LT
