Over $5M of aid delivered to Ukraine – Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal Update

The CUF/UCC Humanitarian Appeal has already delivered multiple tranches of aid to affected populations in all corners of Ukraine, including some of the hardest hit cities in the north, east and south of the country. Our support also extends to affected families who have made their way across the border into neighbouring countries such as Romania and Moldova, as well as providing food for internally displaced families from across Ukraine who find themselves in Lviv and surrounding areas.

To date, over $5 million CAD in aid has been delivered. Subsequent tranches of support will follow in coming days and weeks as we monitor and confirm prior deliveries of support and assess the evolving needs together with partners on the ground. We are withholding more specific information due to security concerns.

CUF has also lent its expertise in helping to coordinate the collection and delivery of various medicine and medical supply shipments for a range of community initiatives across Canada.

As Russia continues its vicious assault on Ukrainian civilians, indiscriminately shelling and bombing Ukrainian cities, the need for humanitarian aid grows every day. 

Please donate to the appeal today to support millions of Ukrainian families who have been displaced from their homes.

Background

The Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal, established by the Ukrainian Canadian Congress (UCC) and the Canada-Ukraine Foundation (CUF) is working with Ukrainian government ministries, who are in the best position to advise on the needs on the ground so that we can ensure that the donations we receive meet the needs of the Ukrainian people. The appeal will work with established partners on the ground who have demonstrated the ability to deliver aid in a timely and effective manner.

The Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal Committee is established jointly by the two organizations to formalize a coordinated approach in providing humanitarian assistance quickly and efficiently to those in need in Ukraine to address any further aggression by Russia. The committee will work with the Ukrainian Canadian community across Canada to reduce duplication of effort, increase efficiency and ensure aid efforts have the most effective impact for Ukrainian citizens affected by the crisis.
