Summary of the conflict in Ukraine

Russia has invaded Ukraine in the biggest state-against-state attack since World War II. Millions of civilians are caught in the middle of an escalating war and humanitarian crisis, and casualties are rising. Your donation to this fund will support Ukrainians in need, with a focus on the most vulnerable, including children. Ukraine is the second-largest country in Europe, after Russia, and has an estimated population of 44 million. Sadly, the people in Eastern Ukraine have grown up in conflict enduring violence, shelling and being displaced from their homes.

2.6 million refugees

The UN’s refugee agency says 2.6 million Ukrainians have fled the country since it was invaded by Russia in late February. It estimates that number may reach 4 million if Russia’s military offensive, which has included widespread bombing of civilian areas, continues.

Working with Project Hope

Choosing a team on the ground in Ukraine and surrounding countries to manage our donations in the best possible way was not an easy task. Many hours of research, including combing through numerous yearly financial reports and talking with representatives has lead us to Project Hope.

We are confident that with Project Hope, our donations will go the furthest and target those in need of the most humanitarian aid. Big or small, any donation will help them provide help on the ground, where it's needed. - DS


Project HOPE works in five main areas: disasters and health crises; infectious diseases; noncommunicable diseases; maternal, neonatal and child health; and health policy.

In disaster, crisis and beyond, HOPE is there: providing direct health care services, equipping clinics and hospitals, training local health care workers, and delivering solutions that help people access the health care services they need.

When disaster strikes in places like the Bahamas and Mozambique, our emergency response teams are on the ground — providing care for evacuees and supporting local health care systems through recovery.

When mothers and babies are at risk in places like Sierra Leone and Indonesia, HOPE trains nurses and midwives with the skills they need to save lives.

When refugees and migrants cross the border looking for a better life, HOPE supports the health systems that will take them on.

And when people with HIV want a different future for their families, HOPE engages entire communities to break down barriers and change the narrative.
