LOAS expresses its support for Ukraine and condemns Russia's military actions

The situation in Ukraine has led many communities and individuals to act and help to the best of their ability. At LOAS, too, we believe in the power of cooperation and caring. While we condemn the military actions of the Russian state, we want to express that we do not accept any discrimination on the grounds of nationality, for example.

In difficult times, support of the community is invaluable. Now if ever it is important to talk about thoughts and feelings with a roommate, neighbor or friend. Don't be left or leave anyone alone.

If the world situation is a cause for concern and fear, remember that conversational help is available. For example, on Mieli ry's crisis phone, you can discuss your thoughts and feelings with a crisis worker or a trained volunteer.
