It’s been 72 days since the latest Russian invasion of Ukraine unleashed a devastating war and forced more than 12 million people to leave their homes and seek safety. Most of them are women and children, and all of them are experiencing the effects of this war. During this time, you have stood with the Ukrainian people and provided critical support through your generous donation to the Ukraine Crisis Relief Fund. Thank you.   

In the past three weeks, GlobalGiving sent an additional US$2.8 million to 46 vetted nonprofit partner organizations helping people in Ukraine and refugees fleeing to other countries in the region. This is our fourth round of emergency grants in our long-term response, with more to come as needs change and emerge.

Below is a short description of some of the humanitarian relief and long-term support you have powered with your donation: 

  • Bright Kids Charity is distributing cash, food, and other emergency supplies and providing medical treatment for children with disabilities and their families. They’re focused on low-income families and single mothers who do not have the means to evacuate and are forced to shelter in their homes.
     
  • The International Charitable Foundation Social Projects Center of Future is delivering meals, hygiene kits, and medical supplies across different shelters in Ukraine. They’re supporting an early childhood center that has become a temporary shelter for women with children under 4 years old who have escaped active combat zones. They’re also providing flea treatments and other supplies for pets in these shelters.

  • Fundacja Centrum Praw Kobiet (Women's Rights Center) operates a helpline and offers other psycho-social support services by connecting mental health professionals fluent in Ukrainian with women and children arriving in Poland.

We are grateful for your donation to help Ukrainians suffering in this war. You are part of a caring community of donors from 147 countries. As the war continues, we remain committed to providing humanitarian relief and long-term support through the Ukraine Crisis Relief Fund. We will keep you informed about how your donation is funding nonprofits delivering emergency relief and helping Ukrainians provide for their families and rebuild their lives in the months and years to come. 

With deep gratitude,
Sandrina + the GlobalGiving team

We are seeing the first signs of spring in many parts of the world, but temperatures remain low in and around Ukraine. And the humanitarian conditions for millions of people there continue to deteriorate daily. We are incredibly grateful for your kindness, generosity, and expression of solidarity with the Ukrainian people through your donation to the Ukraine Crisis Relief fund.

Since the war started five weeks ago, almost a quarter of the Ukrainian population has been forced to flee their homes. The Russian military has shown a total disregard for protecting and treating civilians humanely. The war has broken up families and forced more than 4 million people—mostly women and children—to bravely take long, dangerous journeys by train, car, bus, and foot into neighboring countries to seek refuge. 

In the past two weeks, GlobalGiving sent an additional US$2.5 million to 36 vetted nonprofit partner organizations working diligently across Ukraine and countries in the region to meet the immense needs of the people most affected.

Below is a short description of some of the humanitarian relief you have supported with your donation: 

  • Odessa Charity Foundation Way Home is providing shelter, food, hygiene kits, and care packages for displaced families in Odessa. It is also working with older persons who need extra care during this crisis. For the children who live in its centers, the organization is facilitating therapeutic support activities. And for those who are leaving Ukraine, it is overseeing safe evacuations for them and their families to Moldova.
  • Urgent Action Fund for Women’s Human Rights is committed to supporting women, trans, and nonbinary communities in Ukraine and neighboring countries. It is providing flexible funding, assisting with emergency evacuations and relocations, and offering legal, financial, and medical assistance. It is also increasing shelter capacity for children, women, and all other civilians, and enabling access to critical alternative communication channels by providing mobile internet, power banks, private networks, spare phones, and tablets.
  • Polska Akcja Humanitarna (Polish Humanitarian Action) has an experienced team delivering humanitarian aid to people who have fled their homes both in Ukraine and Poland. Its assistance packages include dignity kits with essentials like soap, laundry detergent, menstrual hygiene supplies, and blankets. The organization recently delivered a shipment of assistance packages to hospitals and families in Donetsk Oblast.
  • Fundatia ROLDAlocated just 8 kilometers from Ukraine in Romania, is helping people and animals affected by the war. Many more animals are now roaming the streets and risk getting killed in the fighting or dying from neglect as homes are destroyed and people are forced to flee. ROLDA is caring for refugees and their pets as they arrive in Romania and also sending much needed supplies to animal shelters in Ukraine.

Thank you for your generous donation to the Ukraine Crisis Relief Fund that supported these efforts. As the conflict rages on, insecurity, uncertainty, and humanitarian needs abound. We are committed to providing humanitarian and long-term support to our partners in Ukraine and neighboring countries. And we will keep you informed about how your donation is impacting the lives of people who are suffering because of this violent conflict.

With deep gratitude,

Sandrina + the GlobalGiving team

I’m writing this update to you on the 16th day since Russia invaded Ukraine and violently upended the lives of millions of Ukrainian individuals and families. You are part of a vibrant community of more than 50,000 individuals and corporate teams who have generously donated to the GlobalGiving Ukraine Crisis Relief Fund. And as humanitarian needs grow exponentially, we are grateful for your support and the awe-inspiring work of our nonprofit partners.

This war is causing widespread suffering, and persons with disabilities, children, older adults, African Ukrainians, Africans, and members of the LGBTQ+ community are being disproportionately impacted by this war.

In our second round of emergency grants, GlobalGiving is sending nearly US$1.6 million to 28 vetted nonprofit partners this week. This will provide much-needed humanitarian aid in Ukraine, along border areas, and in support of refugees in Poland, Romania, Hungary, Moldova, Slovakia, Lithuania, and Austria. It will allow the nonprofit teams receiving the grants to deliver food, water, medical support, baby food kits, and hygiene supplies and meet the many unfolding needs of civilians caught up in the war. Our long-term response will continue with additional grants that respond to changing needs. 

Here is a brief description of some of the life-saving operations you are supporting: 

  • Dzherelo Children’s Rehabilitation Centre has been operating in Lviv for more than 28 years, taking care of children and young people with severe physical and intellectual disabilities. All children with severe diagnoses need constant care, and the war has made it difficult for children and their families to sustain themselves. With GlobalGiving’s support, Dzherelo Children’s Rehabilitation Centre is providing key necessities and medications children need to take daily. 
  • Equal Chance has formed a coalition to support Black people affected by this war. Its team is working directly with impacted African Ukrainians and Africans that have faced discrimination while attempting to flee the country. The coalition is providing buses at the borders to transport refugees, appropriate shelter, blankets, warm clothes, phone credits, diapers, culturally relevant food, and baby food. It is also organizing mental health specialists providing trauma-informed psychosocial support.
  • The HALO Trust is a longtime GlobalGiving partner and has been operating in Ukraine since 2016. It has more than 400 staff on the ground working to protect civilians from deadly explosives. As thousands of cluster bombs, artillery shells, and rockets litter Ukraine’s streets and can detonate at any moment, families are left sheltering in basements and cellars. The HALO Trust is working to keep them safe and providing medical supplies, paramedic support, sleeping bags, and other assistance. 

You can find a full list of nonprofit organizations receiving a grant this week from the Ukraine Crisis Relief Fund at the end of this report.

The plight of the Ukrainian people and others affected by the war feels overwhelming, and the need to help is ever-present. Thanks to your donation, we will continue to provide long-term support through the Ukraine Crisis Relief Fund to our nonprofit partners that are delivering humanitarian relief to communities in Ukraine and refugees who have fled the country. We will keep you informed along the way, so please look out for future updates.

Thank you for your unwavering support for all those affected by the war in Ukraine. 

In solidarity,

Sandrina + the GlobalGiving Team

Thank you for your generous donation to the Ukraine Crisis Relief Fund. Since Russia amassed troops on Ukraine’s borders and then invaded Ukraine last week and disrupted the lives of millions, you’ve demonstrated solidarity and a deep desire to help the Ukrainian people. The GlobalGiving team and our community-led nonprofit partners on the front lines of this humanitarian response are grateful for your trust and support of our work through this fund. 

Even before the war began, GlobalGiving’s local community-led nonprofit partners were preparing and supporting their communities as tensions grew. Now, as Russia’s missile and artillery strikes continue to target civilians and the infrastructure they need to survive, humanitarian needs are soaring.

Today, eight days after the Russian invasion, GlobalGiving is sending approximately US$1 million to 20 vetted nonprofit partners working around the clock to provide humanitarian assistance in Ukraine, along border areas, and to aid refugees in Poland, Hungary, Moldova, Slovakia, and Romania. These teams are delivering medical aid, clean water, shelter, psychosocial services, and hygiene kits as well as helping to safely evacuate children and seniors. This is our first round of emergency grants in our long-term response, with more to come, as needs change and emerge.

Here is a short description of some of the critical work you’ve already supported: 

  • Tabletochki Charity Foundation is helping children with cancer that have now been separated from their families. It is providing them with vital medications, shelter, and basic necessities while trying to safely evacuate them.
  • Let's Help Charitable Foundation is providing older adults, most of whom live alone, with the basics for survival: food, drinking water, and medications. It is also providing them with transportation and helping them reach safe shelter in the event of military strikes. 
  • Public Movement Faith, Hope, Love is repairing bomb shelters and supplying people crowded there with warm clothing, hygiene kits, first aid kits, food, and clean water. 

And across all regions in Ukraine, the Ukrainian Red Cross Society has staff and volunteers providing medical care, first aid, psychosocial support, and other life-saving services. Their teams are also providing search and rescue support to firefighters and delivering first-aid training for volunteers in underground metro stations and bomb shelters.

You can find a full list of nonprofit organizations that received a grant from the Ukraine Crisis Relief Fund at the end of this report. 

As we hear about the latest devastation and see the heartbreaking images, we’re inspired by the care, compassion, and generosity that you’ve shown the Ukrainian people. As we are all witnessing, Ukrainians are incredibly determined, strong, and resilient.

We are proud to stand alongside you in solidarity with the Ukrainian people. And we are committed to continuing humanitarian relief and longer-term support for Ukrainian communities through the Ukraine Crisis Relief FundPlease stay tuned for more updates about how your donations will continue to make a difference.

With deep gratitude,

Sandrina + the GlobalGiving Team

About GlobalGiving’s Disaster Response

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.
