They bring with them terrifying accounts of blaring sirens, nights spent hiding in basements and missiles whistling overhead. As the number of people desperately fleeing Ukraine approaches 3 million and with the United Nations warning that we are facing the biggest refugee crisis in Europe since the Second World War, we ask you to dig deep and give generously.
All funds raised as of 3rd March will go to the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) Ukrainian Humanitarian Appeal, which is bringing together 13 leading UK aid charities, including the Red Cross and Save the Children, the two groups we supported prior to March 3rd.
The DEC was set-up to co-ordinate humanitarian aid for overseas disasters and will ensure that your money is efficiently disseminated to the DEC charities and their local partners to urgently help people displaced from their homes in Ukraine - or fleeing across the border.
The DEC’s 13 member charities who will receive our funds are: Action Against Hunger, ActionAid UK, Age International, British Red Cross, CAFOD, CARE International UK, Christian Aid, Concern Worldwide UK, International Rescue Committee UK, Oxfam, Save the Children UK, Plan International UK, and World Vision UK.
Funds raised on this fundraiser will be managed by GoFundMe.Org.Uk, a charitable incorporated organisation registered with the Charity Commission for England and Wales with registered charity no. 1192829. Donors support the GoFundMe.Org.UK fund, and GoFundMe.Org.UK selects and then distributes donations to organisations that help those affected. Your donation is eligible for Gift Aid.
