DEC Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal

Single donation

With more than 13 million people forced from their homes in just over a month, your help is needed. 

Humanitarian needs are escalating by the hour, civilian casualties are growing, essential services are being disrupted and people are being forced to flee their homes in their millions. 

Since February, almost five million people have fled Ukraine to escape the conflict. A further 6.5 million have been displaced but have stayed in the country. The number of Ukrainian people who need urgent support is huge. 

As millions of people go in search of safety, it's time to act.

Concern’s response

Most of those people crossing the border into neighbouring countries - and displaced within Ukraine itself - are women and children.

“This war is not going to end quickly. 10 million people don’t easily get to go home and rebuild their lives,” says Ros O’Sullivan, Concern’s Head of Emergency Response.

The situation in Ukraine is likely to worsen. Concern’s teams on the ground require continued and immediate support to deliver life-saving aid to the people inside Ukraine who need it most, including:

  • Cash assistance – for rent and other essentials
  • Survival kits – including bedding, blankets, cutlery and tableware
  • Hygiene kits – including toilet paper, soap and other cleaning items
  • Baby kits – including nappies, wipes and soaps

Your donation today will go towards meeting the immediate humanitarian needs of people affected by this crisis, who are vulnerable, frightened and uncertain about what the immediate future holds.

At Concern, we are working in association with our Alliance2015 partners, national organisations and the United Nations to get help as quickly as we can to those who need it most.

What will happen next is unclear, but with your help we can respond and help families affected by the conflict through this crisis. There is no time to waste.
