Frequently asked questions
Is my donation tax deductible in Australia?
How will my donation help?
Listed below are the programs we supported prior to the current invasion in Ukraine. These programs are now on hold, and all funds are being directed to urgent humanitarian aid for people in crisis.
These programs provide training & support for veterans, their families, and others in need.
Occupational Therapy Training
Ukrainian Veteran & Family Support Program
Nazaret Rehabilitation Program
Why were these programs chosen?
These programs fulfil immediate lifesaving needs of the crisis-affected civilian and veteran population in Ukraine. These programs also have proven organisational partners and supporters, who previously successfully implemented these programs elsewhere around the world, with amazing outcomes.
Who is coordinating this?
A dedicated humanitarian aid committee within the Australian Federation of Ukrainian Organisations is coordinating the Ukraine Crisis Appeal, with each special program listed above-having partner organisations who coordinate these initiatives in Ukraine. For the Occupational Therapy Training Program, we are working with Curtin University (WA), the Ukrainian Society of Ergotherapists, and the Ukrainian Catholic University in Lviv. The Veteran programs are run through Caritas and Nazaret.
Is the Ukraine Crisis Appeal the best charity to support?
We only use volunteers - 97.5% of all donations made will go directly as an aid to Ukraine. Weekly meetings with our partners in Ukraine ensure progress tracking and assure the aid sent meets the current needs of beneficiaries.
All funds raised and results achieved are 100% transparent, reported, and published quarterly.
We are safe and secure and work with global, respected partners - Rotary Australia and Caritas Ukraine.
