Depaul International is on the frontline responding to the current crisis in Ukraine, supporting thousands of displaced people as they face the most significant conflict since the Second World War.

We are one of the only agencies already based in Ukraine, and are working across the country, in Kharkiv, Odesa, Kyiv and Western Ukraine, providing life-saving food, shelters and medication, as well as transporting 100+ tonnes of supplies from our depot in Slovakia into Ukraine.

Our services have never met with such demand and our team are working tirelessly around the clock to reach those who need it most.

Our staff are mostly Ukrainian, working in a volatile context, and we continue to be astounded daily by their resilience, courage and commitment to serving others, as they cope with the personal reality of conflict in their homeland.

It is only with your unending support that we are able to continue this work and every amount can be life-changing for those we serve.

Our history in Ukraine

Depaul Ukraine is long established in the country, created in 2007 as a response to the growing numbers of homeless people and it is currently working in Kharkiv, Kyiv, Odessa and Ivano-Frankivsk regions of the country.

Even without conflict, homelessness in Ukraine means temperatures as low as -20C, frostbite, deep snow, lack of access to medical care and, crucially, a loss of identity. The street homeless in Ukraine often have no ID, they are lost to the healthcare and government systems. Because of this, there is no official count of homeless people in the Ukraine, but it is estimated thousands of homeless people are dying every year. Find out more about Depaul Ukraine page here

A maximum of 10% of the money we raise is spent on fundraising and running costs and the rest goes to work on the ground in Ukraine and to neighbouring countries who are delivering aid into Ukraine.
