The Ukraine Disaster Emergency Committee Crisis Appeal

The Ukraine Disaster Emergency Committee Appeal is providing urgent humanitarian aid including food, water, shelter, healthcare and protection.

Disaster emergency committee charities are in Ukraine and neighbouring countries working hard to meet the needs of all refugees and displaced people. All donations will be gratefully received and below are some examples of how charities say the money could be spent:

  • £30 could provide essential hygiene supplies for three people for one month
