Resource roundup: how to help Ukraine

Below is a list of resources you can consult to help those on the ground following yesterday morning’s invasion.

By Staff

Following the Russian invasion of Ukraine, we've collected some useful resources and information.

On February 24th, Russia launched a full-scale invasion of Ukraine, attacking several major cities, including the capital Kyiv. Ukraine's president said that at least 137 people were killed in the first day of Russia's assault, and with fighting reportedly reaching downtown Kyiv, that was likely to rise quickly. Many have sought refuge in basements, metro stations or bomb shelters. Al Jazeera reports that up to 5 million people could be displaced. People on the ground are calling for action - continue mass meetings in the streets of your cities, pressure your government to provide support, offer shelter to those fleeing the violence.

Ukrainians have put together a list of organizations where foreigners can donate. Those organizations include:

  • This Linktree provides an overview of Berlin-specific resources, including a list of upcoming demonstrations.

  • Standard Deviation, the label affiliated with ∄, has also shared a list of funds and organisations supporting the looming humanitarian crisis.

  • Committee to Protect Journalists: CPJ is calling for the protection of journalists in Ukraine following the invasion. Donate here.

  • For those on the ground in Kyiv, here's a map of bomb shelters, via Google Maps.

  • United Help Ukraine are a charitable organisation distributing donations, food and medical supplies to Ukrainian refugees.

Everyone at Refuge Worldwide sends love and strength to our friends across Ukraine.

We will continue to update this list as events unfold.
