We have gathered some charity organizations worth considering
Voices of Children is a foundation that, since 2015, has been helping children in Ukraine deal with the effects of war and build up their futures. As you navigate their page, you can choose which programs you'd like to directly support, including art therapy, mobile psychologists, direct family support, or video storytelling.
Save the Children have been fighting for children's rights around the world for more than a century. They are closely tracking the war in Ukraine and its dire impact on the lives of children, citing 7.5 million Ukrainian children are in "grave danger of physical harm, severe emotional distress, and displacement following an escalation in hostilities overnight." Your donation would go a long way here.
The Red Cross is already hard at work in Ukraine collecting blood, organizing and administrating volunteers, and directly helping those in need during this time of emergency. If you can, choose to make your donation a monthly one, however small.
The free press in Ukraine has never been more important than it is now. Kyiv Independent, a local news organization in Kyiv, publishes in English, can be supported through their Patreon and GoFundMe.
The International Rescue Committee (IRC) has the main goal of evacuating regular people from war zones — including, now, Ukraine. You can donate here.
Sunflower of Peace was nominated by Ukrainians as one of the top organizations they'd love to see foreigners support right now. The organization prepares and provides vital first aid medical kits for doctors and paramedics on the front lines. You can find out more on their Facebook page.
Specchio dei tempi launches an emergency appeal for Ukrainian people, after getting many requests from its readers.
Thus, an amount of 50,000 euros has immediately been put at disposition to support thousands of refugees fleeing from their own war-torn Country.

If you know of a non profit we should consider adding, please email us.Your voice matters! As a founder of StoryChief who was born in Russia I'm disgusted by what's happening right now. Two countries were destroyed in one week's time. I hope more Russians will express their position on not supporting this act of aggression. Make love, not war!
