Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal

At least 5 million people have fled their homes to escape conflict in Ukraine and another 7 million are internally displaced.

Leaving behind jobs, belongings and loved ones, they need shelter, food and water.

Life for the people of Ukraine has completely changed. Homes, schools and hospitals have been destroyed. We are working through our local experts in Ukraine and the surrounding countries, helping those fleeing the conflict to survive.

Refugees leaving Ukraine

What is needed?

With your help, we can keep supporting the increasing number of families who are in desperate need.

Your donations will help local experts in Ukraine to keep providing:

  • food
  • water
  • healthcare
  • shelter and clothing
  • counselling.

How can I help?

Thanks to your kind donations and support, we have been able to respond quickly through the Caritas network - which CAFOD is a member of - to provide shelter, food and safe spaces for families who have lost everything. The humanitarian professionals and volunteers working on your behalf live locally and some are from the area.

The local experts we work with understand people’s specific needs: from water and food, to shelter and clothing, to medicine and psychological support. No-one is the same, no crisis is the same.

When the immediate needs of families affected by the Ukraine crisis have been met, and we have enough funding to be there for the communities we are helping in the long-term, to ensure they can rebuild and heal, we will use any additional funding to support families fleeing conflict around the world.
