Ukraine Crisis Appeal
Resettlement Fund

Around 7,500 Ukrainians have arrived in Australia since February 2022. They now call Australia home.

Donations are tax deductible

Our mission is to help Ukrainian displaced persons upon arrival in Australia. We bridge the gap in government support by providing professional services which are critical to Ukrainians overcoming trauma and dislocation and becoming productive citizens.

Every dollar you give to the Resettlement Fund directly assists with emergency medical care, rental assistance, community integration (including English classes), and child integration programs, childcare or immigration support services.

The big challenge now is finding pathways to permamnent residence. Many of them have already found some form employment but less than half in occupations relating to their skills and qualifications.

These people (mainly single women with children) are overcoming great personal trauma and anxieties to make a new start for themselves. With your help they will make a great contribution to Australias future and become fully integrated into the Australian way of life.

Donate to the Ukraine Crisis Appeal - Resettlement Fund today and

make a difference in the lives of Ukrainian displaced people in Australia!
