We #Stand with #Ukraine

5.00

In order to show our solidarity and support for our fellow Beekeepers in Ukraine, we are raffling tickets in order to raise vital funds for those beekeepers caught up in the Ukrainian war.

The invasion of this souverign state by Russia, will mean that many Ukrainian beekeepers will not be able to tend to their hives and the families of those beekeepers, will have NO incomes this year.

The declaration of martial law by the Ukrianian President Zelenskyy, has meant that all men, aged 16-60yrs are required to fight the Russian invaders. Sadly, we fear that many lives will ultimately be lost. We also fear that many beehives will be lost or damaged also due to the heavy bombing being experienced in Ukraine at this present time.

About 700,000 people or 1.5 percent of the local population in Ukraine are engaged in beekeeping related activities. The country is indeed the top player in Europe for honey production. It is also the second largest producer of honey in the world behind China.

We see beekeeping as an important occupation and part of rural life both in the Ukraine and worldwide much like it is here in Ireland. It is also a key income-generating activity for many Ukrainians and should be defended and supported given what the bees do for the environment and in the way they pollinate plants and crops which will be vital to feed the Ukrainian people after this war. Approximately, 90% of all crops and 75% of all fruits are pollinated by bees worldwide.
