The people of the United Kingdom are standing with Ukraine. Across the country, everyone wants to do their bit to support those who have been forced to flee their homes because of the conflict.
Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) Ukraine Appeal
The UK Government will match pound-for-pound up to £20 million donated by the public to this appeal. DEC charities are in Ukraine and neighbouring countries meeting the needs of all refugees and displaced people:
£30 could provide essential hygiene supplies for three people for one month
£50 could provide blankets for four families
£100 could provide emergency food for two families for one month
More than a million people have fled their homes to escape the conflict in Ukraine.
Heavy fighting, shelling and air strikes across the country have had devastating consequences for ordinary people. Homes have been destroyed. Families have been separated. Lives have been lost.
At Ukraine’s borders with Poland, Romania, Hungary, Slovakia and Moldova, huge numbers of people are arriving with only what they can carry. DEC charities and their local partners are in Ukraine and in neighbouring countries providing food, water, shelter and medical assistance.
