Ukraine Relief Effort

If any local union or member is interested in making a donation to help the people of Ukraine, the AFL-CIO recommends the International Trade Union Confederation's (ITUC) Ukraine Fund.

The ITUC’s Ukrainian member organizations FPU and KVPU are providing support to families who desperately need assistance with food and water provisions, medical supplies and 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 their two member organizations to support their humanitarian work in Ukraine.
