Since the beginning of the war in Ukraine, FIFA (www.FIFA.com) The Foundation has been involved in several activities to help victims by working with local and regional football communities. An initial shipment of humanitarian aid has been sent to the Ukrainian Football Association (UAF), while a total of USD 1 million has been allocated for action to be taken.

Needs and responses are being evaluated and developed in close coordination between the FIFA Foundation, the UEFA Foundation for Children, FIFA, UEFA, the UAF and FIFA member associations, and other football, sport and humanitarian stakeholders.

“In the face of this conflict, we want to do our part and support the people in Ukraine and those fleeing war,” said FIFA President Gianni Infantino. “The FIFA Foundation stands ready to provide any needed assistance by working in coordination with the football community in Ukraine and in the region.”

Following a request from the UAF, an initial shipment of first aid medical kits has been transported by road to Ukraine to meet the most pressing needs. In total, USD 1 million has been provided to the FIFA Foundation so that it can respond to the evolving humanitarian situation in Ukraine and the region. This work is being done in collaboration with the football community to provide assistance where it is needed most.

In addition to these humanitarian activities, FIFA has adopted a series of interim regulatory measures (https://fifa.fans/3qieDlp) to support professional players and clubs in these difficult times.
