Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and the subsequent crisis that has unfolded, ignited a passion in us all for humanitarian aid and global philanthropy.

Regarding the current situation in Ukraine the following statement was released from the Center for Disaster Philanthropy:

“Russian President Vladimir Putin’s assaults on multiple cities in Ukraine began overnight on Feb. 24 and continued throughout the day. Putin stated that Russian forces are targeting Ukrainian military infrastructure, not people or communities. However, deaths have been reported. This latest attack is part of a multi-year crisis stemming back to 2014 and beyond.

Our response to this crisis is focused on humanitarian needs that arise, particularly among internally-displaced peoples and refugees. We are not looking at the conflict itself except in how it affects population movement and humanitarian needs.”
