Our Campaign Storyends 31 May 2022, 11:59 PM
In times as dark as such, we hear touching stories of solidarity by European countries such as Poland who have opened their arms wide to receive and welcome many Ukraine refugees at the expense of their own comfort and finances.
Though we are far away in Singapore, we can still act in solidarity! We would like to do our part, however small, to empathise with and support Ukraine refugees by holding this little fundraiser. Thank you in advance for joining hands with us! xx

This is a fundraising appeal by the Singapore Red Cross (SRC) for the Humanitarian Crisis in Ukraine.
Your donation will provide immediate aid for the vulnerable -- unaccompanied minors, women with children, elderly & people with disabilities; support their basic needs like shelter, food/water, & psychosocial support.
In response to the fast-growing refugee crisis, SRC has contributed $2.5 million in humanitarian aid to Ukraine and 6 neighbouring countries - Poland, Hungary, Lithuania, Slovakia, Moldova and Romania.
SRC Secretary General/CEO Benjamin William: "The combination of an active and bloody conflict, extreme cold weather and Covid-19 means that for the people in the conflict regions and those who have been displaced from their homes, the days ahead will be a struggle for survival. The humanitarian needs on the ground will continue to rise as the conflict intensifies. Our team has been working closely with the Ukrainian Red Cross, the IFRC, the ICRC, and other National Societies to ensure the most appropriate and timely response."
The humanitarian needs are massive & the operations are complex, with the ongoing conflict & border crisis hurting innocent civilians. We call for your support to this critical humanitarian operation.
