Russian President Vladimir Putin has announced military action in the Ukraine, despite calls for peace from the United Nations. While everyone may have differing political views as to what is going on, how other countries should respond, or how they’re feeling, but the truth is, people are hurting and need help.
As the Ukraine declares a state of emergency, here are some ways you can help:
Doctors Without Borders
Doctors Without Borders is an independent organization that provides medical care wherever it is needed most. They currently have a team in Ukraine, and have a tab on their website for anyone who would like to directly donate specifically to support the work amid the crisis
Revived Soldiers Ukraine
Revived Soldiers Ukraine is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing aid to the people of Ukraine in support of their fundamental human rights and medical rehabilitation of Ukrainian soldiers. The non-profit also vows that no more than 10% of donations will go towards their operating costs, so you can be assured that your donation is being used in an effective way.
United Help Ukraine
United Help Ukraine is an organization based in Maryland that provides support to those who are in the front lines, and the families of those who have been wounded or killed. They directly provide medical supplies, humanitarian aid, and more
Voices of Children
Voices of Children is a Ukrainian organization that helps children impacted by war in Eastern Ukraine by providing psychological and psychosocial support.
These are only four of the many qualified, incredible organizations that are available to support as this crisis continues on. When things like this happen, there are always scammers looking to benefit, so make sure before you give to double check your charities or organizations on a website like Charity Navigator or The Better Business Bureau.
