Amid the ongoing conflict in Ukraine, GFC’s community-based partners are continuing to provide food, shelter, medical supplies, and other essentials to children and families under attack in Ukraine and to refugees fleeing the country. They are also evacuating children with disabilities; offering trauma support; and assisting LGBTQ+ youth facing discrimination as they seek safety.
We have been issuing emergency grants and doing everything we can to ensure our partners have the resources they need to respond to this crisis, both over the short-term and for months and years to come.
