Russia invaded Ukraine on February 24, 2022 and since then we have been watching on our screens the horror and unimaginable suffering of a full-blown war. We are far away from those who are helping Ukrainians flee armed conflict and we want to help, but don't know the best way how. One way is to give money directly to The Ukrainian Red Cross. They are on the frontline of this war, helping people inside the country by aiding evacuations, mobilizing volunteers, collecting blood, and providing shelter, food and basic necessities. They have trained thousands of volunteers who, often at their own personal risk under the shelling, deliver humanitarian aid to help the injured, evacuees and those left behind in hotspots. Donating directly to the Ukrainian Red Cross ensures your support gets right into Ukraine. Keep in mind you won't get a tax receipt as this isn't a Canadian registered charity. But for those wanting to know their money is going straight to where it is needed as quickly as possible, this is a way to do that.
