We stand with Ukraine.

We are appalled by the invasion of Ukraine, the devastating loss of life from military action and violence, and the shocking humanitarian crisis that’s now unfolding. This catastrophe is highly unsettling, creating hardship, stress and anxiety for all. No one should feel unsupported or helpless in times of need. We must use our collective voice, influence, reinforcement and actions to provide aid for anyone suffering and to those who defiantly display extraordinary resilience and bravery in the face of oppression.

We’ve compiled the resources below to provide assistance to the people of Ukraine. Please share any thoughts or suggestions with us here for new resources we should add to this page. Our thoughts are with the people of Ukraine, neighbouring countries, and all those impacted by tyranny, conflict and displacement.
