The Carpathian Foundation Hungary (an organizational member of the Coalition) established its Emergency Fund for Ukrainians on February 28, 2022, in close cooperation with its sibling organizations in Uzghorod, Ukraine and Kosice, Slovakia. The Fund provides support to civil organizations that work to mitigate the humanitarian crisis caused by the war on Ukraine. This donation will make it possible to deliver an ambulance to Uzghorod, Ukraine, where it will be used by hospitals and other institutions.

Since February 26, the Coalition has disbursed $110,750 in humanitarian assistance to refugees from war-torn Ukraine. More information on the supported organizations and initiatives are available here.
