Humanitarian Support for Ukraine

People in Ukraine are in grave danger of physical harm, families have fled their homes seeking refuge in neighboring countries, and others are sheltering from bombs falling in major cities. The International Trade Union Confederation’s Ukrainian member organizations FPU and KVPU are providing support to families who desperately need assistance with:

  • food and water provisions,
  • medical supplies,
  • hygiene items.

You can help Ukraine’s workers and their families by donating to the ITUC’s emergency fundraising appeal. All funds donated will be passed on to the ITUC's two member organizations to support their humanitarian work in Ukraine.

The AFL-CIO's National Executive Board issued a statement on Monday condemning the violent invasion of Ukraine by the Russian military, standing in solidarity with the workers and their families who are impacted by the devastation, joining the global labor movement and its allies in calling for an immediate end to President Vladimir Putin’s military aggression, and supporting extensive economic sanctions imposed by the United States and the European Union, particularly those focused on Putin and his protectors.
