Since the full-scale invasion of Ukraine, volunteers and employees of the Ukrainian Red Cross haven’t stopped their work for a moment, providing support to the population in the context of a large-scale humanitarian crisis.

Since February 24, the Ukrainian Red Cross has mobilized all its forces and used available resources to help the population of Ukraine. Two hundred local organizations, 24 regional ones, 1500 employees, and 8000 volunteers, help Ukrainians 24/7 without stopping for a minute. The Ukrainian Red Cross provides humanitarian aid, psychosocial support, conducts information activities on first aid, mine danger, and international humanitarian law. Emergency Response Teams save lives.

To increase its capacity and reach even more people in need, the Ukrainian Red Cross is working with international donors, the public and private sectors, and partners from the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement. We are approached by people from all over the world, gathering and providing all possible help.

All support is important. Even a small donation can potentially save a human life. It allows us to respond quickly to emergencies and provide humanitarian aid to those who need it the most. To give you a perspective, here is what your contribution could bring to the people in need:

$10 could provide a hygiene kit to a family of five

$20 could provide five blankets for families in a shelter

$30 could provide 3,600 chlorine tablets to ensure that families have access to clean, safe water

$100 could provide sleeping mats for 66 people who have been forced from their homes

$210 could provide a fully equipped first aid kit for the first-responders

We are not currently accepting items such as clothes, food or medical supplies for the Ukraine. These kind offers are really appreciated, and we do understand that not everyone is in a position to give money right now, but we can only accept money for emergency appeals.

Items have to be sorted, cleaned, and transported, which slows down our response.

You can contact your local branch of the Red Cross in your country. Most likely your local Red Cross is collecting humanitarian aid for the people of Ukraine.

All donations go to support the Ukrainian Red Cross and the Ukrainian people. We use the fundraising platform in partnership with the Swiss Red Cross.

  • Host a cake sale
  • Host a Red Cross ‘cup of kindness’ tea party (online or in real life)
  • Sponsored challenges – hold a sponsored silence, sponsored walk or think up your own challenge
