Russia’s invasion of Ukraine is a crisis unfolding in front of our very eyes, and a tragedy for the young people and their communities most impacted.

It is estimated that more than half a million people have already fled Ukraine to neighbouring countries and over 100,000 people have been internally displaced.

Y Care International has launched an urgent appeal, to support the response to the crisis happening in Ukraine. Donations made to the appeal will ensure that vital humanitarian assistance is available to those who need it, through YMCA Europe, YMCAs in Ukraine and neighbouring countries.
