It's heartbreaking that innocent children and families have been hurt and killed in the midst of the Ukraine-Russia conflict. Ukraine's health ministry said on Sunday that at least 352 civilians, including 14 children, have been killed since the Russian invasion began. A further 1,684 people have been wounded. Let us do what we can to aid the refugees and children. No war can create peace in the world, war can only break the world into pieces. #wewantpeace #stopwar
An estimated 3 million people in the country rely on humanitarian aid and 850,000 are displaced. Of which, 30 percent of the people in need are elderly. The number of people affected by this crisis is expected to increase massively as the conflict escalates.
In response to this Humanitarian Crisis in Ukraine, the Singapore Red Cross (SRC) will be contributing US$100,000 to support affected communities, working together with the Ukrainian Red Cross Society (URCS) and the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC).

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.
