Ukrainian Grain Association call for humanitarian aid

Ukrainian Grain Association call for humanitarian aid

(Posted on 23/03/22)

Following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the Ukrainian Grain Association has launched an non-political appeal for humanitarian aid.

IBJ is pleased to publish the statement in full:

“If you are a farmer / farmers associations, an input supplier of seed/ chemicals/ fertilizer/ others services, a transport company involved in trucks/ trains/ shipping, if you are a barge/ship/ vessel / silo / terminal owner, if you are involved in trade execution / brokerage / legal and insurance, a physical / financial trader or trade house, an FCM or other clearing facilitator, a media reporter or media outlet / a conference organiser involved in commodities, if you are a feed compound producer or involved in animal production, if you are a flour millers / millers association / baker or if you are an oilseed crusher/ oil refiner/ bio fuel producer or if you are involved in finished food products and selling food and grain and oilseed derivatives then this email is for you.

Our industry has suffered a severe shock, which will present many challenges going forward in the short, medium and possibly long term. As a business, this additional market volatility will be difficult to manage at times, however, it is nothing compared to the constant challenges our grain and oilseed industry colleagues are facing in Ukraine.

Overnight, professionals in Ukraine have lost their jobs, lost their income, lost access to their savings, lost their homes, and in the worst cases, they have lost their loved ones forever.  In many cases these professionals have been forced to separate from families, forced to see their families become migrants and refugees, forced to abandon everything they called home and arrive on borders seeking to escape the insanity of what is happening on the ground in Ukraine.

Thankfully, the wives/ mothers/ children/ grandparents that made it to the borders are being welcomed and they are getting help and support in their hour of need.  But there are many grain and oilseed professionals and their families that are not so fortunate to be in a position to leave Ukraine and they are particularly exposed to an impending humanitarian crisis when their cash, food, fuel, medical supplies are exhausted.

Given the seriousness of the situation in Ukraine, it is now the time for the grain and oilseed industry outside Ukraine to show solidarity with our colleagues and friends.

We must show the same empathy to them as we would like to receive if we were the ones suffering in their situation.   Below is the account details to the Ukraine Grain Association (UGA), they will be able to direct the funds to help supply food, medicine, shelter, transport and logistics, communication with families and other necessities as required on the ground.

Support Ukraine’s Grain and Oilseed Market Participants.

This is not a political statement, it’s a call to support your industry, it’s a call to support colleagues and their families just like you and yours, it’s a call to show empathy for those that are suffering, it is a call to show compassion in a humanitarian crisis.

We can leave the politics to the politicians and in the meantime, we can show the support of the global grain and oilseed family.

Please share with your contacts within our industry.

Thank you in advance for your support.”
