On 15 March 2022, Thai Red Cross Society has donated a sum of USD 20,000 (673,000 Baht) in support of the ongoing humanitarian operations due to the armed conflict in Ukraine. In addition, TRCS is raising funds from the public for the Ukrainian Red Cross Society’s relief activities.
The escalation of conflict in Ukraine is affecting all Ukrainian civilians. More than 2 million persons have now left the country. Many more are displaced within Ukraine, facing danger, hunger, freezing temperatures, illness, as well as the risk of physical harm and emotional distress.
In response to humanitarian crises, staff and volunteers of the Ukrainian Red Cross Society strive to provide relief to people who are affected including clean water, food, hygiene items, shelter materials, medical and other supplies.
The international Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement reminds the parties to the conflict to respect the obligations under International Humanitarian Law and refrain from targeting civilian infrastructures.
To support the Ukrainian Red Cross Society’s response to humanitarian crises in Ukraine, those who are interested in financial donation can donate to Thai Red Cross Society’s account, Kasikorn Bank, account No. 001-1-34567-0, account name: The Thai Red Cross Society for Disaster Relief (swift code: KASITHBK).
