With the recent developments of the Ukraine Crisis, we’ve tried to help those desperately in need by not only donating ourselves, but also using our own communication channels and network to be able to share this list of organisations you can refer to for more information, as well as a list of charitable organisations you can donate to in order to support those affected in Ukraine.
OnBrand will stand in solidarity with Ukraine.
Organisations and charities are as follows:
The Embassy of Ukraine in the UK has set up a special fund to support Ukraine.
Revived Soldiers Ukraine (RSU)
RSU is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing aid to the people of Ukraine so that they may fulfill fundamental rights and freedoms such as right to life, right to appropriate and affordable medical care, freedom of belief and freedom for an adequate standard of living.

Sunflower for Peace
An independent Facebook fundraiser set up by Ukrainian national Katya Malakhova. Donations help to provide first-aid backpacks to doctors and paramedics working on the front line.
“Each backpack has the ability to save up to 10 lives: Ukrainian soldiers, civilians, volunteers, and children,” the page states. “The backpack’s contents are specially designed to be used by highly skilled military combat groups – marines, special forces units and intelligence. These groups operate in areas without access to Medical Facilities or Emergency Care. Therefore, it’s crucial that each combat group have a soldier capable of acting as a medic on the spot.”
UNCHR Refugee Agency
The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees are working hard to provide shelter and safety to Ukrainians who have been forced to flee their homes. They’re asking for donations to their emergency appeal to help with this effort.
The British-Ukrainian Aid charity has launched a JustGiving appeal which works to support victims of the war like wounded soldiers, orphaned children and those internally displaced by the conflict.
“More than 3,000 civilians have been killed, and up to 9,000 injured since the conflict began in February 2014. 1.5 million people have become internal migrants.”
Razom – which translates to ‘together’ in Ukrainian – are a non-profit organisation that supports Ukrainians in their quest for democracy and freedom. They’ve launched an emergency appeal in response to the Russian invasion, providing medical relief to soldiers and doctors on the front line.
CERF – The UN’s emergency fund
The UN crisis relief collective have launched a Ukraine Humanitarian Fund to help victims of the current war.
“Contributions are collected into a single, unearmarked fund and managed locally under UN leadership,” the website states. “As crises evolve, funds are made directly and immediately available to a wide range of partner organisations at the front lines of response. This way, funding reaches the people most in need when they need it.”
