Our Mail Force Ukraine Appeal has raised an outstanding £5 million to help refugees from Ukraine since we launched our appeal twelve days ago.
With the support of The Mail on Sunday, Daily Mail and MailOnline, donations from their readers have made this the fastest newspaper backed fundraiser in world history.
This money is being put to good use, to date Mail Force Charity has given:
- £500,000 to CARE International, which with its partner People In Need, is helping mothers and children arriving in Slovakia.
- £500,000 to UNICEF which is helping families with water food and healthcare.
Donations have been made in many forms, through bank transfer, by text, on Just Giving, and by mailing cheques. An estimated 32,000 cheques have been posted to the DMG Media finance office in Leicestershire and many are still to be counted.
We would like to thank all donors to the Mail Force Ukraine Appeal for their generosity and will be providing more news about the good work your donations are doing.
