Fundraising for Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC)
More than a million people have fled their homes to escape conflict in Ukraine. Leaving behind jobs, belongings and loved ones, they now face an uncertain future.
Intense conflict in Ukraine is threatening the lives and livelihoods of civilians across the country. Families have been separated. People have been injured. Lives have been lost. Homes have been destroyed or are unsafe to live in. Critical infrastructure such as health facilities, water supplies and schools have also been damaged or destroyed.
The DEC brings together 15 leading UK aid charities to raise funds quickly and efficiently at times of crisis overseas.
Pooling resources to work as one, the DEC is pivotal in co-ordinating the UK public’s response to overseas disasters. In collaboration with their Rapid Response Network of national media and corporate partners, they raise the alarm to the UK public and set up easy ways to donate. And, critically, they make an immediate impact, getting aid to people who need it, fast.
DEC charities are in Ukraine and neighbouring countries meeting the needs of all refugees and displaced people. Every pound donated by the UK public will be matched by the UK Government up to £20 million.
