Emergency Humanitarian Aid for Ukrainian Refugees

More than 2 million Ukrainians, mostly women, children and elderly victims of the crisis, have fled their homes to escape the unprovoked Russian attack of their homeland.    

The horrific Russian invasion has forced more than 2 million Ukrainian refugees to seek safety and protection in neighbouring European countries.  We applaud the humanitarian efforts in the border countries of Poland, Romania, Moldova, Hungary and Slovakia.

RESPONSE FOR UKRAINIANS ARRIVING IN GREECE

About 15,000 Ukrainians have arrived in Greece to date.  There is an immediate need for food, shelter, and medical aid. 

The Hellenic Initiative Canada is working with Doctors of the World (MdM) Greece to provide humanitarian aid, medical support and other services for Ukrainians arriving in Greece.  The program will provide:

  2. medical aid and psychosocial support services
  3. material aid to Ukrainian families to help cover basic needs
