A call to action to the German community in Canada: Donate to the Ukraine Humanitarian Crisis Appeal


The ongoing crisis in Ukraine has affected the entire population, with more than 17.7 million people in need of urgent aid. Of those, 4 million are living with hardly any electricity, heat, and water after attacks on critical infrastructure, making them very vulnerable to harsh winter conditions.

Right now, people in Ukraine urgently need winter relief items like stoves, fuel, and warm clothing to survive the winter as temperatures plummet. Generators are urgently needed to give power to vital infrastructure like hospitals and train stations.

The Red Cross is at the forefront of the response – providing shelter and winter relief items – however, the sheer magnitude of this worsening disaster means the help of our community is needed now more than ever.

Money raised will enable the Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement to respond to humanitarian needs generated by almost eight years of conflict, as well as preparedness and response efforts due to heightened tensions in Ukraine. The support could include preparedness, immediate and ongoing relief efforts, long-term recovery, resiliency, and other critical humanitarian activities as needs arise, both in Ukraine and surrounding countries, including supporting populations displaced.

In solidarity with Ukraine, the German Embassy in Canada and the Canadian German Chamber of Industry and Commerce today make an urgent request: Help to keep people in need warm and sheltered. Give to the Canadian Red Cross Ukraine Humanitarian Crisis Appeal using the form below.

"When man finally learns to control the elements... When the winds will be quiet and the earth cannot be torn apart...When there will be no loneliness... no destitution... no war... When the last hungry man, woman or child is fed... Only then will there be no need for the Red Cross."
