Ukraine Crisis - bring help to those in need

A new fund of highly respected charities active in Ukraine which don't benefit from the DEC appeal
Donations matched by The EQ Foundation

As we're presented with daily evidence of the appalling hardship being faced by people in Ukraine and those who have fled the country, most of us are stimulated to try to alleviate their suffering. In the UK over £200 million has already been raised by Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) for a group of 15 well known charities, including Action Aid and Save the Children.

However, there are many other worthy organisations who provide relief such as emergency medical care, support for children trapped in orphanages, and serving meals to those in Ukraine and those who have fled to neighbouring countries. To show our support, we've created a fund of highly respected charities active within Ukraine which do not benefit from the DEC appeal, and invite you to make a difference to the families impacted by these tragic events by making a donation to these organisations.

What's the best way of helping?

There are multiple urgent needs, notably:

  • getting food, medical supplies and medical professionals to areas under attack
  • providing protection and basic supplies to refugees who have crossed into neighbouring countries

Most refugees are women, children or disabled and are often vulnerable and can be at risk of human trafficking. After listening to experienced professionals on the ground, the clear message is that there is an overwhelming preference for donations in the form of cash, not goods. With the productive economy close to a standstill, cash (and not donated or second hand goods) is what is needed so that essential supplies of food and medicines can be purchased and distributed.

Fortunately, there are a number of highly experienced organisations that have been working actively in Ukraine for many years and have infrastructure. They are also responding immediately; getting funding out fast to the besieged areas and to the millions of refugees. Almost all of these are women and children, many without proper documentation. The risks posed by unscrupulous human trafficking gangs are significant.

Your donation will support all of the charities listed above and will be matched 100% by The EQ Foundation, capped at £1K per donation.
