CFSA Donors Offer Match for Donations to Support Ukraine

The invasion of Ukraine by the Russian military is creating one of the most significant humanitarian crises in the world, with millions of people in need of food, shelter, and emergency assistance.

On March 30, 2022, the United Nations Refugee Agency shared that 4 million Ukrainians have fled to neighboring countries, 6.5 million are displaced inside the country, and 13 million are estimated to be stranded in affected areas or unable to leave. Unfortunately, this number will only continue to grow.

The United Nations and its humanitarian partners have launched coordinated emergency appeals for funding to deliver humanitarian support to people in Ukraine and refugees in neighboring countries.

CFSA donors Phil and Carol Lyons are generously matching donations to Project HOPE and Save the Children’s Ukraine Crisis Relief Fund to encourage others to support relief efforts in Ukraine and surrounding areas. Phil and Carol will donate up to $50,000 in match funds, matching $25 for each $100 donated for the first $200,000.
