Zaporizhzhia city is located near the front line of the war. In our city, we receive internally displaced persons from places of hostilities, and the city of Mariupol, which is under siege and severely destroyed. Also, several settlements in the Zaporizhzhia region have been destroyed and their inhabitants have come to our city. At this difficult time, the University must care not only about its first task to educate and conduct research, but also to carry on its public duty to help war-affected families and save lives of suffering people. The displaced people are, therefore, placed on the territory and in the buildings of Zaporizhzhia National University; they are provided with bare necessities and food by the university. We have created a Center for Help at the university https://t.me/help_with_znu. Our university webpage is: https://www.znu.edu.ua/frontpage/3594.eng.html.
As a result of the treacherous armed aggression of the Russian Federation, the university has suffered great damage to both material and human intellectual scientific resources. Therefore, we are in urgent need of financial assistance. To overcome these consequences, we urge to you for the providing charitable assistance.
