Donate to support children and families fleeing this devastating conflict

Children affected by the Ukraine crisis
urgently need help

Their lives are being turned upside down by the escalating crisis and unfolding devastation. As bombs continue to fall, nowhere is safe. Children are at risk.

That’s why we’re asking for your support to save lives and protect children. We’re in Eastern Europe right now, responding to the urgent needs of children and families who have been forced to flee their homes.

The UN estimates 3.5 million people have fled Ukraine, but numbers are likely to rise as the conflict intensifies.  

Children will bear the brunt of this crisis. Your donation today can help provide children and families searching for a safe haven with hygiene kits, protection and psychosocial support - including child friendly spaces.

Help us to act fast to protect children.

We stand ready to support those affected, as the violence takes its toll on children, forcing them from their homes as they flee in search of safety.

How your donation helps

The funds you donate to this emergency appeal will support emergency response for displaced children and families in the Ukraine and neighbouring countries. We will use donations in the Ukraine through partners when it is possible. If this is not possible or in the unlikely event we receive more donations than we need for this emergency, the donations will be used to help displaced and refugee populations elsewhere around the world.

How we work in emergencies

When emergencies hit, children are often the most at risk. That’s why we need to be there – in places torn apart by disasters and conflict.

Your support is needed now more than ever

Why World Vision

Together we’ve impacted the lives of over 200 million​ vulnerable children by tackling the root causes of poverty.​
