Russia has launched a devastating military campaign against Ukraine, a 44-million-strong European democracy. Bethenny Frankel of RHONY has stepped in to help Ukrainians escape the Russian invasion.

According to an Instagram post by Bethenny Frankel, the “Real Housewives of New York City” alum has now collected $25 million for Ukraine rescue efforts. According to Frankel, $10 million has been set aside to assist with the relocation of migrants, with another $15 million set aside for distribution within Ukraine.

BStrong, her foundation, was used to generate the funds. “We are partnering with different apparel companies, food companies, lodging companies to be announced later, to place these people in lodging,” Frankel said on Thursday in an Instagram Story video.

Frankel added:


“Thousands of people in lodging and you already knew that we already partnered with travel companies for trains and planes, so it’s planes, trains, lodging, food and clothing for refugees and aid going in,”

Bethenny is no stranger to disaster relief, having helped Puerto Rico recover from Hurricane Maria, Australia recover from bushfires, and Texas recover from Hurricane Harvey. Since its start in 2017, Frankel’s BStrong has also aided disaster victims in the United States and around the world.
