„YMCA Europe is a working fellowship to strengthen movements where people grow in body, mind and spirit.“


21st March 2022

The news from Ukraine are deeply concerning and shocking.


All our thoughts and prayers go to our sisters and brothers in Ukraine and neighbouring countries affected. Notwithstanding the uncertainty of this political and humanitarian crisis, YMCA Europe and our global partners keep our determination and commitment to support those in need as we stand for peace and justice. 

Using our proven experience and impact on peace work projects, YMCA Europe has the capacity to lead the response in supporting YMCA Ukraine short, medium and long term.

YMCAs in Ukraine and our colleagues are already suffering the consequences of this unpredictable crisis. As an immediate action we are launching this fundraising campaign which will allow us to mobilise resources and meet what in all likelihood will be massive needs (refugee support, rehabilitation of facilities etc.) in our YMCAs in Ukraine and the communities they serve.
