As the security situation allows, the Ukrainian Red Cross Society (URCS) and the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) will continue to respond to existing and emerging humanitarian needs. The Red Cross has supported people affected by this conflict for years and this will not stop now.
Your donation and fundraising could help someone affected get:
• first aid
• warm clothes
So far, Red Cross teams in Ukraine have distributed over 90,000 food and hygiene parcels and provided food, warm clothes, and other aid to around 7,000 people sheltering in metro stations in Kyiv.
First aid training has also been delivered to over 12,000 people taking cover in metro stations and bomb shelters, so they have the skills to treat their loved ones if needed.
Red Cross teams in bordering countries are offering medical care and providing food, aid and shelter to people arriving from Ukraine.
YOUR DONATION WILL HELP THE BRITISH RED CROSS REACH MORE PEOPLE.
£10 could provide a hygiene kit to a family of five, giving them supplies to stay healthy for a month
