As news broke of the outbreak of war in Ukraine following Russia’s invasion, husband and wife team, Nick Tadd and Vanessa Warwick, decided to launch a humanitarian mission to Ukraine. Leaving Vanessa to coordinate efforts from the UK, Nick set off on the morning of 4th March 2022 in his SUV with trailer in tow loaded with donations of food and basic supplies for refugees for the 20-hour drive to the Polish/Ukraine border via a ferry from Dover to Dunkirk. What he witnessed on the border was horrifying. Amid the chaos of millions fleeing Ukraine, Nick discovered thousands of pets and animals left behind to suffer and die. Nick is currently on the front line in Ukraine, delivering food to animals abandoned by fleeing refugees and trying to arrange for some of them to be brought out of the country.
In this episode, Don Robbie and I speak to Vanessa in our Extreme Holidays studio and Nick from the front line about their incredible mission to help save the pets and animals of Ukraine caught up in this terrible war.
NICK AND VANESSA ARE URGENTLY RAISING FUNDS FOR THEIR MISSION.
