Our Crisis Response
We are providing humanitarian assistance in 215 towns and cities across Ukraine, through our network of local partners. We are also helping refugees and people who have been internally displaced by the ongoing conflict.
We have assisted over 188,000 individuals in Ukraine with medical aid, food packages, psychological and employment support. We have reached more than 16,000 refugees in Moldova and Poland and 300 Ukrainians arriving in the UK, helping with language, employment and rebuilding their lives.

Ukraine Crisis Appeal
We are always so grateful for offers of help in times of emergency.
However, although we hugely appreciate offers of donating items like blankets and clothing, fielding these requests can slow down our response. We do not have the resources to transport goods to Ukraine.
The single best way to help people in Ukraine right now is to donate cash – it allows us to get our partners exactly what they need, as fast as possible.
If you have goods to donate, please do not contact our office, as we are not able to help. Please keep an eye out for community initiatives that are accepting goods.
We are one of the UK governments approved providers on the Homes for Ukraine Scheme. We are focusing on carefully matching those Ukrainians who want to come here with the appropriate sponsors. Our priority is to ensure this is as successful as possible for all involved. We are aware that the situation is complex, and the sponsorship model is not ideal. We are working closely alongside local councils and other agencies to manage the process carefully and support Ukrainian arrivals to the best of our ability.
The community’s response in wanting to welcome and support Ukrainian refugees has been phenomenal. We are still looking for more hosts; we receive requests every day from Ukrainians looking for sponsors. If you would like to register to be a host, find out more about the processes World Jewish have put in place or the type of accommodation we are looking for, click below.
