Melanie Rinehart, founder of Spain for Ukraine

FOUNDER

Being the child of a military member taught Melanie at a very young age that those who are victims to war are often those who have nothing to do with it at all. 

Moreover, relocation and the admin of such has been a part of Melanie's life since her childhood spent as a military brat. Into adulthood life abroad captivated her, and she has now lived in the United States, China, Hong Kong, the Netherlands and Spain.

Tired of feeling unempowered and hopeless about the current situation, Melanie created this resource as a manifestation of what we can do when we are motivated to help others. It is also an aggregate of impatience for the existing systems and a way to put power in the form of knowledge into the hands of the people who need it.
