Give: We encourage you to give generously provide aid in Ukraine and support the millions of refugees. To give via the Red Cross and the Disaster Emergency Committee click this link or on the image above. 

St Albans Diocese have also established a fund which will be used to provide immediate financial support for refugees arriving in the Diocese.  You can find details here.
