UKRAINE UPDATE: Tremendous damage to energy infrastructure has caused power shortages across Ukraine, leaving many people without homes, electricity and heat. As we enter the cold, harsh winter months, we urgently need your help to rush relief to vulnerable children and families.

In addition to ongoing programs and relief efforts, SOS Children’s Villages is distributing firewood, blankets, kettles, heaters, hair dryers, convectors, strollers, outerwear, footwear and additional supplies to displaced Ukrainian families. Please donate right away to provide children and families in Ukraine with the resources they need to stay safe and warm this winter!



SOS Children’s Villages has been working in Ukraine since 2003. Our critical programs focus on strengthening families, providing loving homes to children who lack parental care, offering short-term care for children in crisis situations, training youth for employment, advocating for children’s rights and responding to emergencies. 

Our top priority is to protect the children and adults in Ukraine who rely on us for direct assistance. We’re gravely concerned for the safety and well-being of the children in Ukraine, as well as the children in our care in the surrounding countries in Europe. 

Our regional Ukraine crisis response and longer-term actions are to: 

  • Provide immediate support by relocating children and families from Ukraine out of high-risk zones to safety in the surrounding countries. 

  • Scale up efforts to receive and provide aid to refugees in Poland and Romania. 

  • Work with local partner organizations to provide food, critical supplies and much-needed psychosocial services. 

  • Strengthen families into the future by helping them recover and rebuild.
