Family members of Ukrainians who have been evacuated to, or currently reside in Ireland, are stranded in Poland. Please help us to reunite these people with their loved ones.
Galway Tour Company and Go Bus with the help of Proactive Design + Marketing have launched an initiative to raise funds to fly as many people as possible from Ukraine to Ireland. We are reaching out to our business networks and associates to ask for your help.
So far, together with some of our suppliers, we have secured 500 airline seats for families fleeing Ukraine. We are working closely with the Ukrainian Crisis Centre of Ireland to reunite families. We are supported by the Ukrainian Embassy of Ireland and we will endeavour to help as many people as we can.
Please purchase as many tickets as you can – remember every €70 donated puts one person on a flight to freedom.
Proud to be supported by:

Our original intention was to send a fleet of Galway Tour Company and Go Bus coaches to Ukraine and bring people back to safety in Ireland.
We reviewed the logistics with the various Irish charities on the ground in Ukraine and decided that we needed a way to get vulnerable people, many of whom are not able for a long bus journey, out quicker. We negotiated a very good rate with airlines and liaised with charity partners the Ukrainian Crisis Centre of Ireland, who will help to look after the people once they arrive in Ireland.
We are only contributing to one part of the journey, but it means a lot to the charities who are working so hard to coordinate and organise getting people ready to travel and then settled when they arrive.
Donations will go towards purchasing flights for as long as it is possible, any additional funding will be donated to the Ukrainian Crisis Centre of Ireland. All costs of admin and marketing are being covered by Go Bus, Galway Tour Company and Proactive.
Thank you for your support.
