This is a welcome and a bit of a (re-)introduction of who I am and what we do here at ZoG for the new followers and newsletter subscribers who have joined us over the past week since Russian began their invasion of Ukraine. As many of you can imagine, our services are in a bit of demand at the moment, but we’re trying to get content and explainers out as fast as possible.
For those who are new here, the best explainers of how we view the world–and more important, what we see coming down the pipeline–can be found in my books.
But most important, many of you have asked how to help those who are currently suffering in Ukraine. There are many aid groups doing laudable work, but one we are supporting is the Afya Foundation.
At the beginning of the COVID pandemic, we asked our readers who were so inclined and able to consider donating toward a cause we thought was important: Feeding America.
While we still believe strongly in their mission, with recent events in Ukraine we are asking our subscribers to consider supporting a charity focused on relief efforts there. There are many good ones to choose from, but one in particular we are supporting is the Afya Foundation.
They collect money and health supplies for underserved communities in the world, and have begun delivering non-combat support to refugees and population centers in Ukraine. We hope that those who can, join us.
