people helped by DEC charities and local partners using funds from the appeal*

Two years since the escalation of the conflict, the British public has raised £426 million for the DEC’s Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal - the equivalent of £6.35 for every person in the UK. 

DEC charities and their local partners have used donations to help a total of 6.9 million people* affected so far. 

* While efforts have been made to avoid counting people twice, some people may have been helped more than once by different member charities.
