Russia has invaded Ukraine in the biggest state-against-state attack since World War II. Millions of civilians have been caught in the middle of a deadly war and humanitarian crisis, affecting generations of Ukrainians, including children and the elderly. Your donation to this fund will support Ukrainians in need, now and in the future, with a focus on the most vulnerable.
Full-scale war in Ukraine is having catastrophic consequences. More than 8 million people have fled Ukraine in response to Russia's invasion, making this the largest refugee crisis in Europe. Millions more are displaced within the country, facing harsh winter conditions and attacks on civilian-populated areas. Eight years of armed conflict in eastern Ukraine had already created a humanitarian crisis.
All donations to the Ukraine Crisis Relief Fund will support humanitarian assistance in impacted communities in Ukraine and surrounding regions where Ukrainian refugees and others have fled. GlobalGiving's local partners are bringing relief to devastated but determined communities, and they need resources to continue their life-saving work and to recover.
Your donation to the Ukraine Crisis Relief Fund will provide:

When a disaster strikes, recovery efforts led by people who live and work in affected communities are often overlooked and underfunded. GlobalGiving is changing this reality. Since 2004, we've been shifting decision-making power to crises-affected communities through trust-based grantmaking and support.
We make it easy, quick, and safe to support people on the ground who understand needs in their communities better than anyone else.
They were there long before the news cameras arrived, and they’ll be there long after the cameras leave. They know how to make their communities more resilient to future disasters, and they’re already hard at work. GlobalGiving puts donations and grants directly into their hands. Because the status quo—which gives the vast majority of funding to a few large organizations—doesn’t make sense.
