About the Ukraine Crisis Relief Fund 

Millions of people in Ukraine are caught in an escalating military conflict and are in growing need of urgent humanitarian assistance.

Your donation to this fund will support affected communities in Ukraine, with a focus on the most vulnerable, including children, who need access to education, food, medical services, and psychosocial support.

Before the invasion an estimated 3.4 million people needed humanitarian assistance in eastern Ukraine, and now the crisis has deepened immeasurably. Thousands of civilians have already been killed and injured, and millions driven from their homes.

All donations to the Ukraine Crisis Relief Fund will support humanitarian assistance in impacted communities in Ukraine and surrounding regions where Ukrainian refugees have fled.

GlobalGiving's local partners in Ukraine are bringing relief to displaced families and people in high-risk areas, and they need resources to continue and expand their vital work.

Your donation to the Ukraine Crisis Relief Fund will provide:
  • Food, shelter and clean water
  • Access to education
  • Health and psychosocial support
  • And more...
