United Way Worldwide President & CEO Angela F. Williams discusses Ukrainian relief efforts with Adriana Dobrea, Executive Director of United Way Romania. (3-24-22)
As families migrate to safety across Europe, our trusted partners on the ground, United Way Romania, United Way Hungary and Fundacja Dobrych Inicjatyw (Good Initiatives Foundation) in Poland, stand ready to aid those who have been displaced by this crisis. They are working with local partners to determine the needs on the ground and to address the immediate and longer-term relief needed for those made vulnerable by the fighting.
The immediate support will cover:
- Food and medicines
- Critical childcare supplies, including infant formula and diapers
- Hygiene kits, and more
By donating to United Way, you’re supporting vetted, nonpartisan organizations on the ground and providing vital help to those who need it most. This situation is fluid and there is no doubt the needs will be great and will continue for some time.
Funds will be used to support our partners on the ground, United Way Hungary, United Way Romania and FDI Poland. As the crisis evolves, United Way may identify additional partners on the ground to support the needs of Ukraine’s displaced.
Nearly 5 million people have fled the war in Ukraine, with many refugees going to Poland, Romania, and Hungary. United Way is stepping up to provide short-term relief and long-term support.
United Way Worldwide created the #UnitedForUkraine Fund, so people in communities like Delaware and Salem County, NJ can support the needs of children and families affected by the current war in Ukraine.
