Thanks to all residents and communities across Cardiff for all their generosity and support. 

British Red Cross Ukraine Crisis Appeal​

​The Russian attack on Ukraine has caused the displacement of many tens of thousands of Ukrainian people from their homes and marked the onset of what could be the largest humanitarian crisis in Europe for decades. 

The British Red Cross has launched an emergency fundraising appeal in response to the fighting in Ukraine. 

The priority now is to help the people access clean water, health care, and psychosocial support. 

The Ukrainian Red Cross Society and the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) have been working hand in hand with affected communities to respond to the vast humanitarian needs caused by almost eight years of conflict. 

A donation to the British Red Cross Ukraine Crisis Appeal would mean that more people in desperate need are reached. 

Your donation could help someone affected get:

  • food
  • water
  • first aid
  • medicines
  • warm clothes
  • shelter​
