The impact of the Russian invasion of Ukraine on February 24, 2022 is still having disastrous consequences for the people: there are 7.87 million refugees from Ukraine in Poland and over 15 million displaced people inside Ukraine. It is the largest human displacement crisis in the world today.

Funds raised

Thanks to Canadians’ great generosity, Development and Peace — Caritas Canada has so far received around $2 million in donations for current and future humanitarian relief operations (95% of which are being used directly for this crisis, 5% for administrative costs). Thank you for your great generosity!
