In the less than three weeks since Russian forces invaded Ukraine more than 3 million people, mostly women and children, have fled their homes. As the crisis continues to unfold, MatchCraft stands in support of the Ukrainian people and all who are impacted by this war.
A natural reaction to a humanitarian crisis is to want to DO something. “How can I help?” is a question we are all asking ourselves. Below is a short list of organizations helping on the front lines that are seeking donations in support of their relief efforts.
UNICEF’s humanitarian work in Ukraine has focused on safeguarding children’s rights to safety, health, education, psychosocial support, protection, and water and sanitation services.
Médecins Sans Frontieres/Doctors Without Borders
MSF is an independent and impartial organization committed to providing medical humanitarian assistance to people affected by the war no matter who they are or where they are.
Voice of Children is providing non-stop assistance to affected children and families from all over Ukraine, providing emergency psychological assistance, and assisting in the evacuation process.
CARE’s Ukraine Crisis Fund provides immediate aid and recovery, food, water, hygiene kits, psychosocial support, and cash assistance — prioritizing women and girls, families, and the elderly.
International Medical Corps’ teams inside Ukraine and in the surrounding region are responding to the conflict by expanding access to medical and mental health services for those living in affected communities and working to help refugees.
International Committee of Red Cross
The ICRC is responding to urgent humanitarian needs and must be able to continue its life-saving work. ICRC water engineers and doctors aim to help more than 3 million people access clean water and improve the living conditions of more than 66,000 whose homes have been damaged by heavy fighting.
As an extension of our MatchCraft Gives Back and Pay it Forward initiatives, we are extending our team members the opportunity to Pay it Forward by directing their year-end holiday gift to a charity or non-profit inclusive of the Ukrainian relief effort. MatchCraft will also be making a donation to Voices of Children.
