What's going on?

On Feb. 24, 2022, Russian military forces began an invasion of Ukraine. Shelling, air strikes and other active hostilities have caused serious damage to homes and infrastructure, including electricity lines, gas and water systems.

Millions of people have been forcibly displaced since the conflict began, either relocating within Ukraine or fleeing the country according to the UN Refugee agency.

Conflict has been ongoing between Russia and Ukraine since late 2013, with Russia annexing the Crimea peninsula in March 2014.

What is MCC doing?

MCC has worked in Ukraine since our beginnings in 1920, opening soup kitchens to provide relief to thousands of starving families. Our projects in Ukraine prior to the Russian invasion included relief, peace, health and education programs. MCC is in regular contact with our partners who are working to assess immediate needs and are planning ways to scale up their work.
