Help people impacted by war in Ukraine find stability and hope for the future by taking action at home and online.


The ongoing conflict in Ukraine, fueled by Russian military action, has had devastating consequences for the Ukrainian people and those living in the impacted areas. In addition to the loss of life and destruction of infrastructure, the violence has led to widespread displacement and economic instability.

For those who have been forced to flee their homes, finding safety and stability can be a daunting task. Many have been forced to live in temporary shelters or with host families, often in overcrowded and uncertain conditions. These individuals face a number of challenges, including limited access to basic necessities such as food, clean water, and medical care, as well as limited opportunities for work and education1.

But the impact of the conflict goes beyond those who have been directly displaced. The violence and instability have also had a ripple effect on the economy, leading to widespread unemployment and a decline in living standards for many Ukrainians2.

So what can people in the United States do to help those impacted by the conflict in Ukraine find stability and hope for the future? There are a number of ways to get involved and make a difference.

One way is to help is to advocate for policies and initiatives that support the Ukrainian people. This could include calling on lawmakers to support legislation that provides aid to those affected by the conflict, or speaking out against actions that could further destabilize the region.

Individuals can also work to educate themselves and others about the situation in Ukraine, and strive to be informed, empathetic global citizens. By staying informed and taking action, we can all play a role in supporting those affected by the conflict and working towards a more peaceful and stable future for Ukraine.

Finally, you can help people impacted by war in Ukraine find stability and hope for the future through supporting organizations that are working on the ground to provide assistance to those in need. This can include donating money or supplies, volunteering time or skills, or spreading awareness about the situation and the efforts being made to address it.

Greater Good Charities’ funding is providing urgent relief, enabling humanitarian and animal welfare partners on the ground to respond to the immediate needs of the people and pets of Ukraine3.

This funding is providing funding and supplies to help distribute nourishing meals at border crossings for refugees fleeing Ukraine and at shelters and camps for those who remain in the country, while also helping to support people and pet evacuations from Chernihiv and northern Kyiv regions, food, and other supplies for residents not evacuating, and additional sheltering for pets outside the region until they can be reunited with their families.

Greater Good Charities' pet foster software for rescue groups has been activated to help provide temporary homes for displaced pets.

Greater Good Charities is on the ground assessing the situation and distributing humanitarian and pet supplies and food, including our Good Packs. We are distributing directly to refugees in neighboring countries and working with partners who are transferring product into Western Ukraine.

Sign the pledge and make a difference.
