Helping Ukraine any way we can.

UKRAINE CALLS ON FOREIGN CITIZENS TO JOIN ITS FIGHT FOR PEACE AND DEMOCRACY IN EUROPE

On 24 February 2022, Russia launched a military attack on Ukraine. In the first few days of the hostilities, the Russian army has conducted attacks on the civilian population and infrastructure. Civilians are dying each day due to Russia`s acts of aggression against Ukraine.

Ukrainians have already demonstrated their courage and strength in defending their homeland, Europe, and our common civilizational values. This is not just an invasion of Ukraine by Russia, but a start of a war against the entire Europe.

President Zelensky has created the International Legion of Ukraine, consisting of foreign citizens wishing to join the resistance against the Russian occupants and fight for global security.

Join the Legion and help us defend Ukraine, Europe and the whole world!

https://www.savethechildren.org/us/what-we-do/emergency-response/refugee-children-crisis/ukrainian-refugees

The situation on the border of Eastern Ukraine and the escalation of hostilities has triggered an outflow of Ukrainian refugees seeking safety from the conflict. What we’re seeing unfold in Ukraine could become Europe’s biggest humanitarian emergency since 2015. 

At least 7.5 million children are in grave danger of physical harm, severe emotional distress and displacement. Families forced to flee will be in urgent need of assistance with shelter, food and clean water. Whenever children are forced to flee their home, there is a risk that children will become separated from their families. 

Since our founding in 1919, Save the Children has worked tirelessly to provide refugees with lifesaving assistance. Your donation today to the Ukraine Crisis Relief Fund supports humanitarian programs aiming to reach 3.5 million children and their families with immediate aid and recovery.
