How You and Your Community Can Support Ukraine
The unprovoked invasion of Ukraine by the Russian government has led to global impacts. According to the United States Agency for International Development’s (USAID) Center for International Disaster Information, there are over 500,000 refugees and more than 6.7 million people who have been displaced by the conflict. The impact is both personal and systemic. From the rise of cyber threats to global supply chain issues and inflation – towns and cities across the globe have felt the aftershock.
Citizens across Connecticut see the unfolding tragedy and want to help the people of Ukraine. The Connecticut Conference Conference of Municipalities (CCM) and the National League of Cities (NLC) have partnered to provide a mechanism to make donations to assist with humanitarian efforts and help bring about an end to the conflict.

The United Nations and global and local humanitarian partners are committed to delivering direct assistance to the people of Ukraine, and you can support that work directly by clicking here. While cash donations are strongly preferred, the United Nations can coordinate the donations of in-kind goods and services.
