The war in Ukraine has decimated bee colonies throughout the country, and now more bees are at risk of starving when they emerge from hibernation. This Earth Month, act quickly to protect an already threatened species.
Ukraine is one of the top 5 producers of honey in the entire world. Bees not only provide critical pollination to crops and are essential to our food supply, but are also a major industry in Ukraine. The war now poses a serious threat to the country's long term food security and economy.
Many Ukrainian beekeepers have been forced to flee their homes and abandon their hives, leaving bees even more vulnerable. Beekeeping equipment and crops have been destroyed. When the surviving bees emerge from hibernation this March and April, they will face starvation.
Since the beginning of the war, Greater Good Charities has been aiding the people and pets of Ukraine. Now, we're working with Mann Lake and the Brotherhood of Ukrainian Beekeepers to provide resources to surviving bees and beekeepers in Ukraine.
With YOUR help, Greater Good Charities will provide over 30,000 lbs of pollen replacement and 11,000 lbs of sugar to sustain these important pollinators throughout beekeeping season. That's enough protein to feed 255 million bees for three months.
Greater Good Charities is dedicated to being there when it matters. With the help of our amazing community of donors, we've provided truckloads of supplies, food for both people and animals, medicine, emergency transport for pets and much-needed funding in the wake of extreme weather events like hurricanes, earthquakes, wildfires, and now, the ecological crisis in Ukraine.
