Ukraine Crisis Response Fund
CWS established the Ukraine Crisis Response Fund to address the unique needs of Ukrainians displaced by Russia’s invasion. We are on the ground in the neighboring country of Moldova, where nearly 100,000 Ukrainian refugees are living with host families or staying in hotels, apartments and shelters. We are teaming up with local and international partners to reach Ukrainian refugees with food, shelter, hygiene supplies, vital information and other services.
The situation in Ukraine and neighboring countries continues to change, and the relief effort for displaced Ukrainians continues to evolve. CWS is committed to help ensure that Ukrainians who have been forced to flee from their homes have a safe, comfortable and dignified place to stay.

Call on Congress to stand with vulnerable Ukrainians and uphold protections for displaced and at-risk populations.
