What is happening in Ukraine?
Brutal conflict in Ukraine has left millions of people with no safe place to call home. Innocent civilians are being killed, families and lives are being torn apart.
Now, one year after the start of the war, almost 18 million people are in need of urgent humanitarian assistance.
ShelterBox is giving people thermal blankets, clothing, and emergency repair kits. These items will help people fix damaged roofs, seal windows and doors, keep the heat in and make homes watertight.
But as the winter continues on, we need your help to continue responding. People living in damaged buildings with little or no heating are facing temperatures as low as -15°C.
How is ShelterBox helping?
ShelterBox has helped more than 37,000 people affected by the war in Ukraine so far. We’ve supported people displaced within Ukraine, as well as refugees who crossed the border into Moldova.
With our attention now firmly on supporting people through the bitter winter months, we’ll be reaching around 30,000 more people with essential items to help them survive.
People are living in damaged homes without heating or lighting. That’s why we’re providing thermal clothing, solar lights, water carriers and stoves with our new partner, NNLPD.
We’re also working with ReliefAid and Green Chernobyl to provide emergency shelter repair kits. This will help people fix damaged roofs, seal windows and doors, keep the heat in and make homes watertight.

A Transformational Impact
“When I received help, I felt gratitude for the fact that they care about me. In this aid package were the most necessary things. I use the water carriers, since the water supply does not work. The blankets are very comfortable and high quality”
– Oleg, recipient of ShelterBox aid
“Thanks to the people who help. You try not to lose heart. Believe that everything will be fine, that you can handle it. I am grateful to these people for their help, for opening their hearts to people and helping”
