Support Ukrainian civilians and defenders with a donation to these organizations:

HART (Humanitarian Aid Response Team) is a Calgary-based non-profit established in 1996 to effect change by assisting relief agencies working in Ukraine with resurging church communities. Since then HART has built a network of volunteers helping local churches to become self-sufficient community hubs. Today HART’s focus is on providing physical and spiritual support to endangered parishioners, volunteers and children in orphanages HART has established and been supporting in Ukraine.

Ukraine War Amps is a Toronto-based volunteer-run non-profit provides practical assistance to wounded Ukrainian veterans and their families, the families of the fallen, and civilian defenders of Ukraine with financial aid for food, medications, rehab, and other needs, as well as personal outreach for moral and emotional support to ease symptoms of PTSD (depression, despair, loneliness, hopelessness). Today they are providing direct help to civilian defenders as well as Ukrainian Army soldiers with tactical gear, and basic necessities for them and their families.

Two other excellent non-profit organizations to support are US-based and Vancouver-based Maple Hope Foundation, both of which are helping to provide civilians and defenders on the ground in Ukraine with food, water, shelter and other basic necessities, and transport to safety.


It is wise to exercise extreme caution and due diligence in the case of any large, prominent charity or non-profit that does not have a history of actively supporting Ukraine for the past several years. (Credible reports are emerging from aid workers in the war zone that e.g., the International Red Cross has NOT been aiding Ukrainians in danger.)

To avoid the risk of your hard-earned money being misdirected due to bureaucratic bungling and/or corporate corruption, you may want to consider donating to organizations (such as these listed) that have a history of helping Ukraine since the first invasion by Russia in 2014, and even earlier.

Check out our interviews with representatives of each of these organizations on recent editions of the show. (Click on the player at the top of the page or the Podcast Editions tab in the menu.)
