Story

The people of Ukraine have endured a year living in fear of air strikes and missiles; a year of dreadful uncertainty about their and their loved ones safety; a year of terrible deprivation as the economic impact of the conflict has intensified. Now, 12 months after the war began on 24 February 2022, winter is here. All of the countrys thermal and hydroelectric power plants have been damaged, and people are struggling to survive in unheated and bomb-damaged homes.

UNHCR remains on the ground in Ukraine and neighbouring countries, providing lifesaving protection and support for as long as necessary. But we cannot do it alone. Please donate now. Your continued support remains essential and is needed now more than ever.

How your donations can make a difference:

£45 could help provide 10 warm fleece blankets to refugees fleeing war in Ukraine

£86.37 could help provide vital support to a child in Ukraine, including outreach activities and day care centres

£198 could help provide an emergency cash payment to four displaced people in Ukraine to help them buy what they need the most

£634.48 could help two families warm their homes with fuel-based heating

Please give now to help save lives.
