Washington, D.C., March 7, 2022: Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur (OH-09) released the following statement highlighting the U.S. Agency for International Development’s Center for International Disaster Information as a resource for the public to support humanitarian aid efforts for Ukraine.

“Since Vladimir Putin renewed his murderous assault on the Ukrainian people eleven days ago, hundreds of innocent Ukrainians have been killed, and more than 1.5 million have fled across the border,” said Rep. Kaptur.

“This war has unleashed a humanitarian crisis that is rippling across Europe, and the American people are rising up to support Ukraine. Right now, the most effective way for the public to provide support is through monetary donations.

“The U.S. Agency for International Development’s Center for International Disaster Information has compiled a list of reputable, verified organizations able to deliver vital humanitarian aid.

“We encourage those who are able and willing to utilize USAID’s Center for International Disaster for their charitable giving.”
