As Russian forces take their first major Ukrainian city (Kherson) and bombardment of the capitol (Kyiv) continue, the need to send help to Ukraine has never been greater.
Nearly 700,000 people have fled Ukraine for neighboring countries, while European Union officials predict that as many as 7 million could eventually be displaced. Following is a list of charities and other groups that are soliciting donations to help Ukrainians in their time of need.
Here is a list of resources for you to make charitable contributions, or to provide other forms of assistance.
All help will, I’m sure, be appreciated.
Doctors Without Borders. Staffers with the medical relief organization remain in Ukraine and are "seeking ways to respond to the medical and humanitarian needs as the conflict evolves." Offer support here.
"Keep Ukraine's media going" is a GoFundMe campaign for journalists around Ukraine that also aims to help reporters relocate and continue their work from neighboring countries. Donations can be made here.
Razom for Ukraine. Started in 2014 and devoted to building a stronger democracy in Ukraine, the nonprofit is now "focused on purchasing medical supplies for critical situations like blood loss and other tactical medicine items." Here's a list of supplies it's purchased already and an appeal for more support.
Voices of Children. The Ukraine-based charitable foundation has been offering psychological counseling, including art therapy, for children affected by war in the country's east since 2015, according to its site. The group is currently helping children and families across Ukraine, including helping with evacuations.
World Central Kitchen. Founded by world-renowned chef José Andrés after an earthquake devastated Haiti in 2010, the group provides meals to people in need around the globe. Andrés is now feeding Ukrainian refugees at the Polish border. Those wanting to help finance the group can do so here.
