Binance Charity, a charitable initiative of the largest bitcoin exchange, has donated $2.5 million in cryptocurrencies to support UNICEF’s work to save the lives of children in Ukraine amid Russia’s invasion.
The international organization noted that the funds come at a critical moment when UNICEF needs to expand its activities in Ukraine.
UNICEF’s main activities for children and their families in the current environment include:
provision of drinking water, medical services and protection;
supply of hygiene items and medical products to settlements in the combat zone;
interaction with municipalities in order to organize assistance;
promotion of mobile groups involved in psychosocial support.
Recall that Binance announced the allocation of $10 million to resolve the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine.
As of March 6, the total amount of cryptocurrency donations to the country’s charitable foundations exceeded $82 million.
