The Chernobyl Greater Cause

The Greater Chernobyl Cause immediately pulled all its operations out of Russia on the 24th February 2022 due to War against Ukraine.


Ukrainians are suffering this very moment from the effects of Russian violence. That violence targets innocent civilians and society’s most vulnerable people, these people are no different from you or me. The violence destroys homes, hospitals and countless lives. It tears families apart and sends many into exile – millions of people being forced to leave their homes.

But Ukraine is resilient and they continue to be strong and fight for their nation’s survival and for the right to dictate their own future. They need your support to overcome a brutal enemy that does not share the same values as Ukrainians – or Irish.

The Greater Chernobyl Cause has been helping people for over two decades and is the Irish organisation best placed to provide humanitarian support since Russia’s full-scale invasion in February 2022. Nearly two  year later, Ukraine continues to defend its territory and provides civilians with the support needed to rebuild lives and livelihoods.

Your support – and the support of the wider Irish community – has been critical to that success, however more needs to be done. The support you give to Ukraine will help to save lives and rebuild communities. Your generosity will buy food, clothing and medicine, help to build shelter, provide medical and mental health assistance and ensure that millions of displaced men, women and children can live in safety and dignity.
