Ukraine Crisis Appeal
Resettlement Fund

Help displaced Ukrainians to live safely in Australia

Donations are tax deductible

The Ukraine Crisis Appeal Resettlement Fund’s mission is to help all Ukrainian displaced persons upon arrival in Australia. We help bridge the gap in government or other available support by providing professional services and knowledge, which are critical to Ukrainians resettling in Australia and integrating into Australian life.


We are best placed to do this due to a 70-year track record of integrating Ukrainian migrants into Australia. Our experience and understanding of the Ukrainian psychology – combined with our dedication and service to the wider Australian community – best positions us to provide the transitional and long-term support our newcomers need in Australia.


Every dollar you give to the Resettlement Fund directly assists with emergency medical care, rental assistance, community integration (including English classes), and children integration programs. childcare or immigration support services. It enables more than 4,500 recently displaced Ukrainians to live safely in Australia while providing them with the opportunity to contribute to their new communities and support their families.


Already your support has been critical to helping displaced Ukrainian men, women and children to build a life away from war. Our goal is now to raise another $500,000 which will  support those already in Australia, while demonstrating Australia’s capacity to help future families fleeing a cruel war.
