On World Refugee Day, reach out to those most in need


On the 24th of February 2022, Russia launched a military offensive into Ukraine, causing civilian casualties and destroying the country’s infrastructure. More than a quarter of the population has been forced to flee their homes. In the first few weeks, more than 4.3 million refugees fled Ukraine, and a second as many were internally displaced. It is the fastest growing refugee crisis since World War II.

We cannot be indifferent to the suffering of our neighbours – we immediately set out to help!

On World Refugee Day 2022, reach out to those most in need – including in Ukraine

Mrs Maria sits on her favourite bench, so polished from use that the seat looks like it is made of marble, not oak planks. You can see that she used to spend her days here, with a view of the neighbouring farms in front of her and her field behind her – something to be proud of. The village was her whole world. Now the only thing left for the 85-year-old woman is this bench. Everything she had was destroyed by the Russians. With tears in her eyes, she shows us where the kitchen was, where the bedroom was…. Everything is now a heap of rubble. Maria had to flee and now she has nothing to go back to. “I have nowhere to sleep, and the field where the vegetables should already be growing is littered with mines.”

More than 100 million people around the world are currently unable to live where their home is. This is an all-time record number, which not only today, on World Refugee Day, should draw our attention to the fact that something alarming is happening.

The number of refugees and internally displaced people is affected by wars, including the one in Ukraine, and by climate change, which leads to crop failures, droughts, floods and, ultimately, famine. Numbers have no names, no faces and no life stories. It is easy to work with them, making analyses and forecasts, but these 100 million people are very real people. Real people like Maria, who has spent her whole life in the village of Teterivske, 100 km from Kiev, in the worst possible direction – to the north-west, near the border with Belarus. This is where the Russian army came through at the beginning of March. They destroyed everything here.

Mrs Maria regularly receives help from us in the form of food parcels and basic necessities. Our aid also reaches refugees in Greece, Bangladesh and the Democratic Republic of Congo every day. None of us would want to be in their situation. None of them wants to be in it either.

We meet these people. There is fear and doubt in their eyes. They can no longer count only on themselves. They are counting heavily on us. And thanks to you, we can reach out to them. Join us and do something good for them!
