WASHINGTON (CNS) — Various Catholic agencies are collecting donations to aid with the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine, as people flee to escape Russian bombing and shelling. Below are some ways to donate. This list is not exhaustive.
The Ukrainian Catholic Archeparchy of Philadelphia also has a donation page.
Internationally, Aid to the Church can be reached here.
The Knights of Columbus launched the Ukraine Solidarity Fund, and donations can be made here. On Feb. 25, the Knights of Columbus announced a commitment of $1 million for immediate distribution to support Ukrainian refugees and will match all funds raised up to an additional $500,000.
The relief funding will be used to provide shelter, food, medical supplies, clothing and religious goods, as well as other humanitarian needs as identified, both directly in Ukraine and through refugee sites in Poland.
Donations can also be made to Jesuit Refugee Service at www.jrsusa.org to support the agency’s work in Europe “to accompany, serve, and advocate for those forced to flee from war and conflict.”
The U.S. Bishops’ Collection for the Church in Central and Eastern Europe designated its annual collection, taken in most diocesan parishes on Ash Wednesday, to support Ukraine and the surrounding region as a result of Russia’s invasion.
The Salesians also are accepting donations to help refugees, here.
The International Catholic Migration Commission has set up an emergency appeal for Ukraine, with a donation link here.
