DonateStart a fundraiser

We are all following the news - the invasion of Ukraine by the Russian military is creating one of the largest humanitarian crises in the world, with millions of people in need of food, shelter, and emergency assistance. In consultation with local partners, the King Baudouin Foundation United States (KBFUS) launched a Humanitarian Response Fund for Ukraine. The fund is pooling contributions, to be distributed to three local nonprofits working on the frontlines - Caritas Ukraine, People in Need Ukraine, and the Polish Red Cross. These three organizations work hard to provide food, shelter and medical assistance to vulnerable individuals across Ukraine and to the hundreds of thousands of Ukrainians who are seeking refuge across borders.

People in Need - Ukraine Established in 1992 by a group of Czech war correspondents, People in Need is one of the biggest nonprofit organizations in Central Europe. Its core focus is on humanitarian assistance, based on the ideals of humanism, freedom, equality, and solidarity. Its local team is now working out of Lviv in western Ukraine, where the situation is deteriorating rapidly. They arrange for convoys of trucks loaded with humanitarian aid - food, hygiene items, diapers, sleeping bags, mats, and other goods - to assist the hundreds of thousands of internally displaced people flocking to the city and provide support to those waiting for safe crossing into the Slovak Republic. Caritas - Ukraine

With more than 40 local organizations in 20 regions of Ukraine, Caritas Ukraine is dedicated to assisting vulnerable persons affected by traumatic events—regardless of age, sex, nationality, religious or political beliefs. Since 2014, following Russia's annexation of Crimea, Caritas Ukraine has been providing humanitarian assistance to hundreds of thousands of survivors of hostilities in Ukraine, especially vulnerable groups -children, single parents, people living with disability, and the elderly. Caritas Ukraine is currently providing food, clean water, shelter and hygiene kits across Ukraine and at Ukrainian borders. Polish Red Cross The Polish Red Cross is part of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement. Since the beginning of the armed conflict in Ukraine, hundreds of thousands of people have crossed the Polish border – mainly women and children seeking shelter. The Polish Red Cross is providing food, shelter and medical assistance to Ukrainian refugees arriving in Poland. Volunteers and employees of the Polish Red Cross organize reception points along the Polish-Ukrainian border and are also present at railway stations in various cities across Poland. KBFUS is a 501(c)(3) public charity. Donors may claim the maximum tax benefits allowed by U.S. tax law for their contributions.
