    In recognition of Poland's essential role in supporting refugees fleeing the invasion of Ukraine, Stand Up For Ukraine was a pledging event convened by European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen and Prime Minister of Canada Justin Trudeau.

    The event also featured a message from the President of the EIB, Werner Hoyer, who highlighted our support for Ukraine. Watch President Hoyer’s video message and find out more about the EIB’s pledge.

    The aim of the campaign was to raise funding and other types of support to cater for the needs of internally displaced people in Ukraine and refugees. The campaign answered a call for support launched by the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy.

    6.5 million are internally displaced. In addition, the European Union is hosting more than 3.8 million refugees. Poland is hosting more than 2.5 million refugees and plays an important role as a humanitarian hub, dispatching support to Ukraine from all over Europe.

    “Stand Up For Ukraine” mobilised governments, institutions, artists, companies and individuals to raise funding and other types of support.
