To donate money to the Ukrainian appeal, you can give to The Disasters Emergency Committee which is an umbrella group of UK charities which coordinates and launches collective appeals to raise funds to provide emergency aid and rapid relief to people caught up in disasters and humanitarian crises around the world.

We've collated some prayers you may wish to use to pray for peace and for the peoples of Ukraine and Russia, and reflect on the Christian call to be peacemakers.
