Your help is urgently needed for families from Ukraine.

More than 8 million people are fleeing for their lives to neighboring countries—leaving behind homes, jobs and everything familiar.

There is great risk of additional suffering both within Ukraine and for those who are fleeing to neighboring countries for safety. CRS and Caritas partners on the ground need immediate support to meet both ongoing needs as the situation intensifies.

With your gift, families in Ukraine and the surrounding countries receive food, clothing, transport to safe shelter, cash assistance, counseling and care for children.

Years of conflict along the eastern border had already displaced 1.3 million people from their homes and claimed 14,000 lives and now 2.3 million people have fled Ukraine. Almost ninety percent of the refugees are women and children. Throughout this time, Caritas Ukraine, with support from CRS, has been providing emergency relief and recovery—and now help is needed more than ever.

The situation there is rapidly unfolding, and we could not do this work without your support. When you donate, you provide immediate assistance for your Ukrainian sisters and brothers affected by this crisis.

Your prayers and support will make so much difference. Please give a vital gift today!
