The war in Ukraine continues to escalate, with no end in sight. More than a quarter of Ukraine's population have now fled their homes or sought refuge in neighbouring countries.
As the humanitarian crisis continues to escalate, Caritas agencies in Ukraine and neighbouring countries are on the ground responding to the urgent needs of displaced families, the elderly and those living with a disability.
Your donation can support families fleeing conflict.
"We will continue to carry out our services to those in need, and we will not leave anyone behind."
The funds raised through this appeal will be used to provide immediate and longer-term humanitarian assistance to communities affected by the conflict in Ukraine, and to displaced Ukrainians in neighbouring countries. Caritas Australia will use these donations through our partners in Ukraine and neighbouring countries where possible.
Where this is not possible, the funds will be used to provide immediate and longer-term development and humanitarian assistance to communities affected by crises and poverty across the world. If any excess funds remain after a crisis, or if there are changes in circumstances beyond our control that limit our ability to use the funds, they are kept in the Emergency Response Appeal so that we can respond to ongoing development needs and future crises across all our regions.
