We’ve raised $140,913 so far for Ukraine and other emergencies around the world!


The Russian invasion of Ukraine has forced over 4 million people to flee Ukraine and many more are displaced within the country while seeking safety. Many refugees now are being hosted in Poland, Hungary, and other European countries. While ODW typically only works in countries in Tiers 3 or 4 of the United Nations Human Development Index, we are expanding our efforts to support the people of Ukraine during this extremely dangerous time. While Ukraine currently, and rightly, has captured our attention, our global neighbors in Afghanistan, Tigray in Ethiopia, and South Sudan are also fleeing conflict and violence. One Day’s Wages’ Emergency Relief fund is ongoing and able to quickly and appropriately respond to the many crises around the world.


We are actively vetting partnerships in response to the unfolding crisis in Ukraine. Our promise to you is that we will make informed decisions about where to invest grant funding so that you know your money is going to trusted, local relief. One Day’s Wages has pledged $250,000 for emergency relief in Ukraine. Our goal is to raise $500,000 over the next two months for relief efforts in Ukraine and for emergent crises around the world. We will take our lead from organizations responding on the ground as they know best regarding how to meet their growing needs. As always, we are committed to reporting back to you with transparency and integrity. 


Please consider a $100 donation today for our Emergency Relief fund (or whatever you are able) to help us respond quickly to a time-sensitive crisis. Give your one day’s wages, get your community involved, or start a fundraising campaign. If you’re a company or church that wants to collaborate, contact us. Together, let’s make resources available so that families don’t have to worry when they’re forced to leave their homes. You are making a difference, together we can make an impact.


When a national or global crisis strikes, communities with high rates of poverty are particularly vulnerable due to a lack of resources and infrastructure. One Day’s Wages has created an emergency relief fund to be able to quickly and appropriately respond to crisis situations such as natural disasters, conflicts, epidemics or pandemics, food insecurity, and drought. Our promise to you is that 100% of donations made to emergency relief will go to fulfilling the needs of communities that are the most vulnerable. Learn more about where we’re responding:






We choose our partners wisely. Each organization goes through a rigorous vetting process before we approve a grant.
