Yesterday Evening, Hellhades held a Charity Stream (Friday 04/03/2022) To raise funds to support the people of Ukraine through the terrible times they are facing.
It was an incredible show of support from the community, which we’d like to thank you massively for – You guys really are amazing.
How much was raised?
In total, a staggering £6529.44 ($8,636.81) was raised, £750 ($992.06) of that will go to the Red Cross for their support in Ukraine at this time.
The remaining £5,779.44 ($7,644.75) will go to Project HOPE.
Who are Project HOPE?
Project Hope is an organization that for over 60 years have been transforming the health and well-being of communities and people around the world. They work on the front lines of the world’s health challenges, partnering hand-in-hand with communities, health care workers and public health systems to ensure sustainable change.
In Ukraine, they are on the ground responding to the crisis and actively shipping essential medicines and medical supplies to assist Ukrainians. The situation they are facing is urgent, many civilians and medical workers have been killed and over 1 million Ukrainians have had to flee their homes to find safety.
The United Nations have warned that continued conflict in Ukraine could lead to as many as 5 MILLION refugees, which would make this one of the largest refugee crises on earth. As the conflict is intensifying within Ukraine, Project HOPE are on the ground delivering urgent assistance to them and surrounding countries.

What your support means to us:
As mentioned above, we want to say a HUGE thank you for all of the support you have provided during this immensely difficult period of time for the people of Ukraine, but not just that – Plarium, the team behind the game that we all love and play, people who we have worked with for multiple years behind the scenes, allowing us to bring you the content we do, and allowing us to do this for a living.
Below you will find a video of Hellhades interviewing Cirilla, for those of you who don’t know Cirilla, she is a Community Manager at Plarium, and her life has been completely uprooted as she’s had to travel across Ukraine to reach safety while her home city has suffered devastating attacks.
This will give you some insight into what it’s like to be in the situation they are in, however, it is a very tough video to watch and is very upsetting so viewer discretion is advised.
