25 Meaningful Ways You Can Help Ukraine

As the Russian invasion of Ukraine threatens more lives, here are some meaningful ways you can help.

By Khanyi Mlaba and Tess Lowery

Editor’s note: The situation in Ukraine is actively evolving, as are the needs of citizens in the country and neighboring regions. We will be keeping this list up to date with the evolving ways Global Citizens can help in the coming days and weeks.

The world was brought to a standstill as news broke on Feb. 24 that Russia had invaded Ukraine. Global Citizen released a statement condemning Russia’s attack on Ukraine and calling for all military action to cease immediately, as well as for humanitarian aid to be supported as the conflict unfolds.

Global Citizen has pulled together a list of things you can do to support the people of Ukraine wherever you are. 

Tweet Now:

Support the Ukraine Crisis Appeal

What to Know

President Putin’s invasion is putting civilians at risk, forcing families to flee, and disrupting essential supplies.

The UN is launching an urgent appeal for US $1.7 billion to deliver life-saving humanitarian support.

Call on governments and businesses to unite and pitch in to meet the target. Tweet now.

Who Is the Most Impacted?

According to UN data, in 2021 the crisis in Ukraine affected 1.5 million people half a million of whom are children and minors. As with any crisis, women, children, marginalized communities, and the poor will be those most affected. Ukrainian parents are already taking heartbreaking measures to protect their children including sending them into school wearing stickers identifying their blood types in case of bombings. 

There are many students from overseas who were studying in Ukraine and are now trying to leave. Ukraine’s Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba tweeted on March 2 that an emergency hotline has been established for African, Asian, and other students wishing to leave Ukraine (at +380934185684), working to ensure their safety and speed up their passage.

TAKE ACTION

  1. Join a Peace Protest

If you’re following and keeping up to date with the ongoing situation on the ground, but you’re still wanting to do more and/or you don’t have the financial means to donate, consider joining demonstrators around the world  — from London to Tokyo — who have taken to the streets to protest Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Find your nearest demonstration here

  1. Take Action With Global Citizen

You can join Global Citizen in taking action in a few key ways. The first, is to show solidarity with Ukraine and the Ukrainian people, by sending our tweet highlighting that we must #StandWithUkraine and choose peace not war. Take action here.

The United Nations (UN) has launched an urgent humanitarian appeal for $1.7 billion to deliver life-saving humanitarian support. You can send an urgent tweet in support of the UN’s appeal, urging governments and businesses to support the people of Ukraine. Take action here. 

Meanwhile, 40 Ukrainian civil society organizations have come together with six urgent appeals for the world with the Kyiv Declaration, and you can take action to help them get heard. They request safe spaces to be provided for civilians, sanctions on Russian banks, support for local humanitarian responses, freezing the assets and revoking the visas of Putin and his cronies, defensive military assistance, and provision of equipment to track war crimes and ensure that all those responsible are one day brought to justice. Take action here to help amplify their appeal. 

Global Citizens based in the UK can also join us in calling on MPs to stand with people fleeing Ukraine and all refugees who need safety and protection, and vote against the Nationality and Borders Bill — also known as the “Anti-Refugee Bill”. The proposed bill would punish people that are seeking safety in the UK by stripping basic and essential protections. The UK government has announced its solidarity with Ukraine, and now it’s time to put those words into action by providing safe passage and protection to refugees. Take action by emailing your MP here.

UK-based Global Citizens can also join us and Make My Money Matter in urging UK pension funds to stop funding the Ukraine invasion. That’s because UK pension funds invest in lots of industries, and your pension could well be investing in weapons and Russian industry directly linked to the crisis in Ukraine without you knowing it. Take action by emailing UK pension providers here
