Frequently asked questions

How does my donation help those fleeing the war in Ukraine?

With the support of you and other donors, water, food and shelter will be provided as emergency assistance. Children will be given the opportunity to continue attending school as soon as possible.

The war in Ukraine has driven a huge number of people from their homes. We offer our support to all those fleeing the conflict, especially the most vulnerable and those most in need. In practice, this means providing water, food, soap and other basic supplies.

We are trying to ensure that children can continue to attend school as soon as possible, even during a crisis. School brings a sense of security to children and gives them hope for a normal life.
