A band of DIY pedal builders have teamed up to produce a collection of one-off effects pedals, which will be auctioned off in an effort to raise funds for Ukrainian refugees.

Operating under the Pedals For Ukraine banner, the cohort of casual pedal builders is raising money for a handful of charities – including Doctors Without Borders, World Central Kitchen and USA for UNHCR – that are working to provide food, medicine and other crucial supplies to Ukrainian refugees, who have been forced to leave their homes following the Russian invasion of their country.
