As of June 2022, over 7,000 visas to Ukrainians were issued with approx. 3,000 arrivals from Ukraine.

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 in providing professional support for resettlement, and assist their integration into Australian society.

Who we are

The AFUO - Ukraine Crisis Appeal Resettlement Fund is more than just a fund. We are a part of the Australian Ukrainian community who together over 70 years have forged a strong presence to become an integral part of Australia.

Our experience and understanding of the Ukrainian psychology best positions us to provide the transitional and long-term support our newcomers' needs in Australia.

  • Their daughters and sons are our daughters and sons

  • Their pain is our pain

  • We are on this journey with them from beginning to end

  • Today they are newcomers, but AFUO’s aim is that they will always be a part of our community while in Australia.
