British Ukrainian Aid
Supporting people suffering from the war and humanitarian crisis in Ukraine
Assisting those who have been impacted including; the injured, orphaned, and disadvantaged
British-Ukrainian Aid supports people suffering from the war and humanitarian crisis in Ukraine by aligning UK and Ukrainian efforts.
The focus of the charity is to offer assistance to vulnerable individuals who have been physically, mentally or socially disadvantaged, including the injured and wounded, orphaned children, the elderly, internally displaced persons and families who have lost their main earners.
We provide assistance to orphanages, schools or directly to victims of war in war-torn areas of Ukraine. Thousands of them have lost their fathers during the current turmoil; their families have been misplaced, their schools and kindergartens destroyed.
We run Sponsor a Ukrainian child programme and put supporters in touch with individual families. Our supporters can sponsor a child and become Guardian angels for children in need.
We send humanitarian and medical aid to the elderly in the war zone and address their individual needs for effective treatment and care. The occupation has dramatically altered their lives, and many of them are divided from their families, services and livelihoods. The current crisis affects the highest proportion of elderly people in the world, more than 30 per cent.
We provide assistance for displaced people at both the individual and community level. We help them to integrate locally, return home, or move to another location. They face shortages in food, health services, basic household items and shelter and suffer from psychological distress after more than five years of conflict.
