Here Are 5 Ways You Can Donate To Help Millions of Ukraine Refugees

Ukraine has become the center of the world’s eye as Russia ravages their communities with unprovoked attacks. Families bid each other farewell as mothers and children flee the decimated cities while fathers and husbands fight to protect their homes.

The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees projects that 8.3 Millions refugees will leave Ukraine. Spokesperson Shabia Mantoo warned that another 13 million Ukrainians are estimated to be stuck in areas that were attacked also suggesting that 9 in 10 fleeing are women or children. “The human impact and the suffering already caused by this war are staggering,” Mantoo said, “families have been torn apart, houses and infrastructure have been destroyed” and millions will feel the lasting “trauma” of war. 6.8 million refugees have fled Ukraine making it the world’s largest current refugee crisis.

It’s an unimaginable reality for Ukrainian families as their lives have been completely uprooted. The world has rallied around the people of Ukraine and while nothing can replace the devastating loss, Americans have been wanting to pitch in. According to Google, searches about how to help Ukraine have been spiking.
