Jesuit relief efforts for Ukraine, both inside the country and in neighbouring nations, are being coordinated by the Jesuit Refugee Service (JRS) in Europe which has a long experience on the ground. Canadian Jesuits International (CJI) is one of many Jesuit organizations around the world contributing to this effort. All donations received for the Ukranian relief effort will be channeled through JRS Europe.

The Jesuit community in Ukraine is accompanying people fleeing the devastation of war. In border countries, Jesuits and their lay partners accompany the refugee population, mainly in Poland, Hungary and Romania, as well as a second line of work in five countries in southeastern Europe that are also receiving refugees. The main activities are:

  • Temporary shelter/accommodation for refugee population
  • Food, water and other basic materials (NFIs)
  • Facilitating the transport of the refugee population
  • Legal assistance
  • Psychosocial support and other protection mechanisms
  • Educational support
