Ukraine Humanitarian Crisis: How we can all help and support the people of Ukraine

Story posted: 30.03.22

Ukraine Appeal

All of us at Ashtons are deeply saddened and shocked by the ongoing events in the Ukraine and our thoughts and sympathies continue to be with all those affected.

As the Russian invasion of Ukraine has unfolded, so too has a humanitarian crisis that has forced civilians to flee their homes or take refuge in bomb shelters and subway stations throughout the country.

Here is a list of just some of the organisations across the UK and internationally who have launched appeals to raise money towards providing humanitarian relief in Ukraine. Donations can be made via the links to their websites or social media pages.

DISASTERS EMERGENCY COMMITTEE (DEC)

DEC charities are in Ukraine and its neighbouring countries meeting the needs of all refugees and displaced people. The money raised by the DEC Ukraine Appeal will fund food, water, medicine, protection and trauma care for those fleeing the war. This appeal is also Government matched, pound for pound, up to the value of £25m. Donate here.

UNICEF

Unicef, the United Nations humanitarian aid organisation focused on children’s welfare, is working to support the health, nutrition, HIV prevention, education, safe drinking water, sanitation and protection for children and families caught in the conflict in Ukraine. Donate here.
