Early in the morning of June 6, russian occupying forces destroyed the Kakhovka Dam in Ukraine, unleashing a flood that threatens to destroy 80 villages and towns. The flood has also caused a catastrophic humanitarian and ecological disaster. The Kherson region is home to many endemic plants and animals native to that region, and the dam’s destruction means an unprecedented environmental crisis.
Tens of thousands of people are displaced or awaiting rescue. So yet again, we find ourselves compelled to act swiftly and assist those in desperate need.
Immediate Action Required
Our partners in Ukraine are already on the ground, providing aid where it is most needed. However, the scale of this disaster continues to grow with each passing minute. To address the urgent needs of the people affected, we implore you to step forward and support our efforts to deliver water pumps, water purification tablets, food parcels, hygiene kits, and generators to the areas most impacted by the flood.
How You Can Help
There are immediate actions you can take to make a difference:
- Advocate: Reach out to your elected representatives and the President to express your outrage and concern over Russia’s actions. Remind them that these actions violate Article 56 of the Additional Protocol to the Geneva Convention.
