We are all deeply shocked and saddened by reports coming out of Ukraine that three people - including a child – have been killed in a Russian air strike on a maternity and children's hospital. 

"At this difficult time I want to stress that we are here for anyone affected by these terrible events, wherever they are. 

"Baby loss and bereavement have no barriers and we are here to support bereaved families, their friends, and for healthcare professionals who will be increasingly called upon to care for refugees arriving in the UK."

- Clea Harmer, Chief Executive, Sands

We are urgently adapting our bereavement support services so that we can offer English-to-Ukrainian translation for anyone contacting our helpline, and to ensure our bereavement support book and other materials are available in Ukrainian. 

Our thoughts are with all the people of Ukraine and their families and friends in the UK and around the world at this devastating time. 

Find support for you or someone you know.
