“It is a dark day for world peace…The humanitarian consequences on civilian populations will be devastating. There are no winners in war, but countless lives will be torn apart.”
UN High Commissioner for Refugees

We’re heartbroken to watch the crisis in Ukraine unfold. Crossroads is now working with a trusted NGO partner in the region on what they need and how we can help.

Give money

Currently, their most urgent need is financial support. With these funds, they can send immediate aid to Poland, Hungary and Romania, for refugees flooding across the borders from Ukraine. In the coming weeks they will also channel needed goods directly into Ukraine.

We have set up a dedicated fund so that we can respond as quickly as possible through these trusted partners. You can donate now, using the button below. Follow the link and in the ‘disaster name’ box, write ‘Refugee response’:

Thank you for caring!

Give goods

Dried food (with at least 1 year’s date)
Sleeping bags
