King's pledges assistance for students affected by Russian-Ukraine conflict
March 23, 2022
King's has established a Ukraine Conflict Emergency Fund to provide financial aid to members of our community who are directly impacted by the Russian-Ukraine conflict. An appeal has been sent to faculty, staff, alumni, and friends of the University to contribute.
Many members of the King’s community have expressed interest in supporting students who are directly and negatively impacted by Russia's invasion of Ukraine. There are King's students from that region who no longer have access to their bank accounts and who will be unable to return home to their families when the semester ends.
By contributing to the fund, you can help ensure King’s students have a home to stay in, food to eat, and the ability to pay bills, including those that cover services that allow them to connect with their loved ones. All funds raised will support those directly affected by the conflict and demonstrate that King's stands in solidarity with those suffering from the violence and injustices caused by this conflict.
“The kindness and generosity of the King's community knows no limit, and we are grateful to all who reached out asking how they can help our students. Every donation, no matter the size, makes a difference,” says Jana Gordon, Executive Director, Alumni and Development.
