Ukraine Christmas Appeal

Christmas in Ukraine typically starts in mid-December and runs until the Feast of Epiphany on January 19. As so many people have fled their homes and will be separated from loved ones this Christmas, it’s more important than ever to find moments of joy. That’s why Christmas celebrations are planned across our services, with festive meals in our shelters, brightly decorated trees in the basements-turned bomb shelters, parties in our emergency family accommodation, and gifts for the children.

But the hardships of war don’t stop because it’s Christmas, so neither will we. We’ll be continuing food distribution to over 20,000 people throughout the Christmas period and forging ahead with winterisation activities to keep people warm and safe.   

Your donation will be used where needed most to support the people of Ukraine, but below are just a few examples of the difference your gift could make:

  • £35 could provide a Christmas meal for five people
  • £80 could provide 10 children with a Christmas gift
  • £250 could pay for decorations and a reusable Christmas tree in one of our shelters
  • £500 could fund trauma counselling in one of our day centres for a month
  • £1,500 could help people in recently liberated areas survive the cold by providing a generator for a communal heating point

We recognise that times are tough, but your donation really could bring joy, or even save a life this winter so please give as generously as you can.
