 Red Cross Work in Ukraine! 

Update June 1, 2022 

Dear friends,

The War in Ukraine is triggering threats of cyber, nuclear, and other hard to imagine threats to Ukrainians and humanity in general. The Red Cross Network is helping.

On the frontline, The Red Cross Society of The Ukraine is providing medical aid and support to vulnerable and wounded Ukrainians. The ICRC is reminding all parties to the conflict of the importance of not violating the rules of war.
