A statement from Matthew Carter, CEO of Depaul International on the current situation in Ukraine:
“ We are horrified to see Russian troops have now launched a full-scale invasion of Ukraine. We stand firm in our commitment to supporting the most marginalised and vulnerable people, and are deeply concerned for the millions who are facing the possibility of losing their homes and lives in a large- scale humanitarian crisis.
We are in constant contact with our staff at Depaul Ukraine, who are safe and well, and working to keep our services open as much as possible, disseminating information to those living on the streets, as well as providing emergency shelter, accommodation, food, medical and legal services.
We continue to implore all parties to reach for peace, not arms, and for humanity to prevail.”
