ukraine crisis appeal
Street Child's Ukraine Crisis Appeal promise is that we will pass on 100% of your donations to local organisations and deploy funds almost immediately. We have identified several grassroots organisations who are on the frontline in Ukraine and have already commenced active support.
We are also stepping up efforts to engage with organisations serving refugees, in particular on the Romanian and Moldovan borders, where the gap between need and provision is likely to be greatest.
We need to act now to save lives.
Street Child are working with grassroots, frontline charities who are best placed to make decisions on where funding is most needed. These incredible organisations, such as Smile and Bright Kids, are doing critical work at the very heart of this conflict but would likely be overlooked by larger umbrella organisations. Street Child are also able to deploy funds very quickly, meaning your donation is in the hands of local organisations within days, not weeks.
The quickest way to support is by donating online. You can also support by promoting the work of Street Child. Please do follow our social channels (links are in the footer) and share our updates with your friends and family.
Whilst we appreciate all offers of support, we aren’t accepting physical donations such as food and clothing. Cash allows local organisations to source goods locally, directing assistance to where it is most needed and reduces pressure on transportation routes.
We have active support with Posmishka (Smile) UA, Bright Kids, AirLight, Ridni, Proliska and Donetsk Youth Debate Centre.
In the coming days, with your support, we will significantly scale our activity and intend to release grants to several more grassroots, front-line charities in Kyiv and across the country. We are also stepping up efforts to engage with organisations serving refugees, in particular on the Romanian and Moldovan borders, where the gap between need and provision is likely to be greatest.
Yes, please do! We would encourage you to get creative with your fundraisers- you could encourage everyone in the office or at school to dress up in yellow and blue, set up a cake sale or run the equivalent distance to Kyiv with a group of friends. Please do contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
