Prosperity Cafe and Restaurant

The Prosperity Cafe and Restaurant, located in Twickenham, started its humble beginnings serving delicious Ukrainian style home cooking to its customers.

When war broke out in Ukraine on the 24th February 2022 Galyna Kosyn'ka and Oleksandr (Alex) Yarema (see photos in footer), who run the Prosperity Cafe and Restaurant, took the decision to close Prosperity’s doors as a cafe and restaurant and instead put the space to use helping those in need, as featured in a BBC article on 9th March 2022.

Prosperity has now become one of the central donation hubs for humanitarian aid for Ukraine in the South-East of England. 

Run solely by a dedicated team of volunteers, our humanitarian aid is delivered directly into Ukraine to the places it is needed most.

On our donations page you will be able to see what type of aid we currently accept. The aid we accept is based upon what our counterparts in Ukraine advise us is required and where. This helps us ensure that the right type of aid is going to the right places.

Munira Wilson, MP for Twickenham, has also expressed support to the humanitarian work undertaken at Prosperity restaurant.

We are affiliated with the British-Ukrainian Aid charity, registered in England and Wales, (charity number 1164472).
