The conflict in Ukraine is spurring a humanitarian crisis. Since Russia’s invasion on February 24, 2022, more than four million people have fled Ukraine, while others remain internally displaced and in hazardous and uncertain conditions as violence impacts the country’s infrastructure (including access to shelter, food and water, and medical care).

To help refugee and humanitarian efforts related to the war, you can donate to the following organizations:

Berks County Community Foundation’s Fund for Ednannia supports Ednannia, a national network for community foundations in Ukraine and an implementing partner of USAID and the EU Delegation to Ukraine. Ednannia will redistribute grants to civil society organizations and community foundations providing services in Ukraine.

CARE is providing water, food, hygiene kits, and cash assistance in Ukraine, prioritizing women and girls, families, and the elderly.

Center for Disaster Philanthropy’s Ukraine Humanitarian Crisis Recovery Fund will address humanitarian needs that continue to arise as a result of the conflict, particularly among the most vulnerable, marginalized, and at-risk peoples and refugees. It is also in contact with and can regrant to Ukrainian and other international organizations providing support on the ground.

Doctors without Borders provides health care to conflict-affected communities. It is providing emergency medical humanitarian assistance in Ukraine and neighboring countries, and providing training and medical supplies to hospitals and other civil society organizations.

GlobalGiving’s Ukraine Crisis Relief Fund will provide shelter, food and water, health and psychosocial support, and economic assistance to displaced Ukrainians in need.

Immigrant Advocates Response Collaborative is a network of legal services providers across New York State. It is working to provide legal resources and trainings related to Ukraine aid, and to help Ukrainian people who need legal assistance.

International Medical Corps has expanded its work in Ukraine since the collapse of eastern Ukraine’s health system in 2014. It is working with partners in Ukraine and neighboring countries to provide health, mental health, and gender-based violence support services.

International Rescue Committee is working with humanitarian partners in Poland and Ukraine to provide critical aid to Ukrainian refugees.

Project HOPE is assisting Ukrainians with essential medicines, medical supplies, and health screenings and care for people fleeing the conflict.

World Central Kitchen provides meals in response to humanitarian, climate, and community crises. It is supporting restaurants in Ukraine and has provided over a million meals in more than fifty-five cities in Ukraine and neighboring countries.
