Ukraine Crisis Appeal
With more than 13 million people forced from their homes since the start of the crisis in late February, 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 thousands.
The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) estimates that more than 13 million people have been forced to leave their homes in Ukraine, fleeing either to other parts of the country or into neighbouring territories.
Concern has deployed an emergency response team to support the people of Ukraine. As millions of people go in search of safety, it's time to act.
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. 13 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.
“With the support of the Irish public, we are there to help those in need,” adds Concern Worldwide CEO Dominic MacSorley.
“We urge you to support our appeal for funding in any way you can.”
There is no time to waste.
