About The Canada-Ukraine Foundation

The Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal, established by the Ukrainian Canadian Congress (UCC) and the Canada-Ukraine Foundation (CUF), is immensely grateful to all Canadians for their generous support of humanitarian relief efforts in Ukraine.

As Russia continues its vicious assault on Ukrainian civilians, indiscriminately shelling and bombing Ukrainian cities, the need for humanitarian aid grows every day. We work to support the continuing work of the Canada-Ukraine Foundation in delivering assistance projects generated by Canadians to Ukraine. Your donation ensures our programs and committees receive the funding they need to provide life-changing aid to Ukraine, especially during these troubled times. Based in Toronto, our organization has years of experience in providing charitable aid in both Canada and Ukraine.
