Fundraising Responses to Ukraine
We’ve been having lots of calls with people since the start of the war in Ukraine as our humanitarian friends and clients formulate their responses to the crisis. With no end in sight to the conflict, there’s no doubt we are looking at a vast humanitarian emergency for a considerable time to come.
Our jobs of course are to help mobilise the resources to fund this. All the evidence is that there is vast outpouring of support from people and organisations all over the world for the people of Ukraine. This can sit uneasily with those of us who are very conscious of the crises that haven’t have this level of attention, many of them, like Yemen and Syria, very much still ongoing. But this is the world we are in and we all know that where media attention goes, so follows the money.
I don’t think we’ve seen this level of public support for a crisis since the Boxing Day Tsunami of 2004. And that was a one-off event, while this will continue.
