Your donations are at work in Ukraine
Since the beginning of the conflict in Ukraine, Canadians have donated more than $11 million to the Humanitarian Coalition and its member agencies to provide humanitarian assistance to people who urgently need it.
These contributions are making a concrete difference for the people who have been forced to flee their homes in extremely difficult circumstances.
Women and children make up 90% of those who have fled, and we are paying close attention to their needs during this vulnerable period. Here is how you have been helping so far, both inside Ukraine and in Moldovia, Romania and Poland.
