Ukraine Crisis Appeal
Almost two million people have been forced to flee Ukraine and up to four million people are expected to be without a safe place to call home as a result of the military offensive that began in late February. It is the biggest movement of people in Europe since World War II and a humanitarian crisis.
Your donations will help support the immediate shelter needs of refugees from Ukraine through Habitat’s work in Hungary, Poland, Romania and Slovakia.
How Habitat for Humanity is helping
Habitat for Humanity national organizations in Hungary, Poland, Romania and Slovakia are responding to the needs of families fleeing violence in Ukraine. These on-the-ground teams are ramping up efforts to reduce the vulnerability of refugees and meet their shelter needs as well as planning to partner with refugees seeking long-term shelter.
Habitat prioritizes support for particularly vulnerable refugees, including children, the elderly and those who are neither citizens of Ukraine nor the country they have arrived in. Click here to learn more about Habitat’s disaster response.
“I join my Habitat colleagues in 75 countries in calling for an immediate end to the terror being wreaked on Ukrainians. Canada has close ties to Ukraine and the people being targeted. We will support them as they rebuild their homes, communities and futures.” – Julia Deans, Habitat Canada President and CEO
