The people of Ukraine are facing a humanitarian crisis. Since Russia launched its invasion of the country on Feb. 24, 1 million people (at the time of this writing) have fled Ukraine’s borders. With many areas of the country reporting shortages of food and drinking water, those fleeing the conflict urgently need relief.

If you’d like to donate to humanitarian efforts helping those impacted by the violence in Ukraine, our editors have compiled a list of organizations working to address food shortages and provide food assistance to those in need.
