ukraine crisis appeal
On the 24th February 2022, Russia launched a military assault on Ukraine with the intention to invade. Follow up attacks in October 2022, aimed to cripple the country’s energy infrastructure, leaving millions of people without power or heating in the cold winter months. It is estimated that 17.7 million people are need of humanitarian assistance.
We have identified and have been working with 15 local partners across Ukraine, Romania, and Moldova. We support these local organisations through a flexible funding scheme, allowing them to assess the needs on the ground and respond in the way they feel would make the biggest impact, be that food and clothing or blankets and hygiene kits.
Donate today to support our life-saving work in Ukraine. We will ensure that 100% of your donation goes to where it will make the biggest impact.
Street Child are working with grassroots, frontline charities who are best placed to make decisions on where funding is most needed. These incredible organisations, such as Smile and Bright Kids, are doing critical work at the very heart of this conflict but would likely be overlooked by larger umbrella organisations. Street Child are also able to deploy funds very quickly, meaning your donation is in the hands of local organisations within days, not weeks.
The quickest way to support is by donating online. You can also support by promoting the work of Street Child. Please do follow our social channels (links are in the footer) and share our updates with your friends and family.
Whilst we appreciate all offers of support, we aren’t accepting physical donations such as food and clothing. Cash allows local organisations to source goods locally, directing assistance to where it is most needed and reduces pressure on transportation routes.
Yes, please do! We would encourage you to get creative with your fundraisers- you could encourage everyone in the office or at school to dress up in yellow and blue, set up a cake sale or run the equivalent distance to Kyiv with a group of friends. Please do contact email@example.com for more information.
