Brutal conflict in Ukraine has left millions of people with no safe place to call home. Innocent civilians are being killed, families and lives are being torn apart.
Now, more than eight months after the start of the war, over 15 million people are in need of urgent humanitarian assistance.
ShelterBox is giving people thermal blankets, clothing, and emergency repair kits. These items will help people fix damaged roofs, seal windows and doors, keep the heat in and make homes watertight.
But as the winter creeps in, we need your help to continue responding. People living in damaged buildings with little or no heating are bracing for temperatures as low as -15°C.
Your support will help families affected by the Ukraine crisis or other disasters around the world
How is ShelterBox helping?
We have already distributed thousands of mattresses to people living in collective centres like schools and churches in Lviv, Ukraine. This offers people somewhere to sleep and keep warm at night.
We will also be distributing thermal blankets, clothing, and emergency repair kits – including tarpaulins and timber – to help people fix damaged roofs, seal windows and doors, keep the heat in and make homes watertight.
The most vulnerable households will also be given solid fuel stoves, and a supply of firewood that will last the average family through the winter.
Finally, we are supporting refugees in neighbouring countries with high priority items they can carry with them, like hygiene items and cash.
