In March 2022, the MSC Foundation launched an urgent humanitarian response to Europe’s largest refugee crisis this century, as millions of forcibly displaced people from Ukraine fled across the border with only what they could carry.

The initiative is being supported by a powerful fundraising campaign, with the MSC Foundation matching all donations received to reach its ambitious humanitarian goals as quickly as possible.

The MSC Foundation is also taking care of all the logistics and transport free of charge using Group resources. So every donation goes entirely and directly to purchase emergency relief items for the forcibly displaced people seeking protection and safety.

The Foundation is partnering on the ground with the UN Refugee Agency UNHCR (United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees) to ensure these relief items are swiftly provided in the agency’s transit centres, immediately reaching those in greatest need.

The Foundation’s goal is to deliver 100,000 high thermal blankets, 100,000 sleeping bags and 50,000 folding camp beds for these traumatised refugees and internally displaced persons, mostly women and children.

Please help now!

Your generosity will make a massive difference. Just think that €100 will contribute 20 thermal blankets, €250 give 28 sleeping bags and €500 provide 35 camp beds. And the MSC Foundation will double your donation!
