An update on your donation to the Ukraine Crisis Relief Fund

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

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.
