Jewish Federations have collectively raised over $60M and allocated funds to 35 NGOs operating on the ground in Ukraine and neighboring countries to support refugees and Jewish communities in their time of need.
We’ve Worked in Ukraine for Decades. Now We're Needed More Than Ever.
Today, over 3.5 million refugees have fled Ukraine, with millions more internally displaced or forced to shelter in or near their homes. While thousands of Ukrainian Jews have fled the country, most of the 200,000 strong Jewish community is still sheltering within its borders. Because our partner agencies, the Jewish Agency for Israel, JDC, and World ORT, have been working steadily in Ukraine for generations – we’ve been able to be on the ground responding to emergency needs from day one of the conflict.
All of the support we’re providing is only possible because of you – but the crisis has just begun. Your continued help is crucial.
This is a Humanitarian Crisis.
The war in Ukraine will create one of the most significant humanitarian crises of this century. Already, an estimated 10 million people have been displaced, making this the largest number of displaced people in Europe since WWII. The needs are many and urgent. For all those streaming over Ukraine’s borders, they include food, shelter, clothing, medical supplies, safe passage, and help to make aliyah or to resettle in another safe haven. All those staying behind are also in dire need of your aid. For the tens of thousands of homebound elderly, many of whom are Holocaust survivors and those living with disabilities, humanitarian supplies, medicines, and ensuring regular contact are necessary to survive.
We Need Your Help.
Without the generosity of people like you, the support we’ve been able to provide and continue to provide to meet the growing needs would not be possible.
