The Current Crisis


What is happening in Ukraine?

Millions of people have been forced to flee their homes in Ukraine. It’s been called Europe’s biggest refugee crisis since the second world war. It’s a tense, dangerous, and distressing situation. The ongoing violence is separating people from their families with some areas going without water, electricity, and phone connectivity. Many people are taking cover from the shelling in basements and bomb shelters and are going without the most basic supplies, like food and water.

What is happening around the world?

Right now, the story in Ukraine is one of great urgency. But even at a time like this, it is important to remember the terrible plight of those fleeing other conflicts. Their stories must not be forgotten. Conflicts in Syria, Yemen, and even Afghanistan where thousands have lost their homes and their loved ones.

How can we help?

Let's Donate To The British Red Cross
We will be donating to The British Red Cross, who are part of the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC), which unites 15 member charities who are experts in humanitarian aid and specialists in different areas of disaster response. The DEC launches appeals during times of monumental suffering, which is the case in Ukraine right now. How is the Ukrainian Red Cross helping on the ground? Around 4,000 Ukrainian Red Cross volunteers are reaching as many people as possible, distributing 30,000 food and hygiene parcels so far, and helping evacuate people with disabilities. The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) is working to provide water and repair water infrastructure especially in areas in the east, where water supplies have been disrupted. They have set up water points and delivered water to villages and hospitals. Read how The British Red Cross is helping
