It’s an incredibly tense, dangerous, and distressing time for people in and around Ukraine right now.
Millions of people have no safe place to call home. Many are fleeing to bordering countries, while countless families remain trapped underground, taking cover from the shelling, and desperate for a safe escape. A large number of people still have no food, no water, no medical care, and no heat or electricity.
As the security situation allows, the Ukrainian Red Cross Society (URCS) and the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) will keep responding to existing and emerging humanitarian needs.
Red Cross teams have been working around the clock to get critical care to those who need it most. Kind donations from the public are allowing them to provide food, hygiene parcels, warm clothes, medical care, and psychosocial support to people sheltering underground in Ukraine, and in bordering countries.
But with recent freezing temperatures, and ongoing violence, the number of people needing humanitarian assistance is at an all-time high.
The Red Cross needs your help to keep responding. Please give to the British Red Cross Ukraine Crisis Appeal now, if you can.
