Women for Refugee Women stands in solidarity with women fleeing Ukraine and their loved ones.

As the crisis in Ukraine unfolds, we urge the UK government to step up and do all they can to protect Ukrainian refugees.

The quickly escalating situation is a clear reminder of the need to uphold the right to asylum. The UK government must be prepared to protect Ukrainian refugees and to ensure their safety.

But the current Government and Home Secretary are actively reshaping the UK refugee protection system to be more hostile, difficult and punitive.

The Nationality and Borders Bill will make it harder for people under threat to find safety in the UK, including those fleeing the current crisis in Ukraine.

There’s still time for the UK government to do the right thing and abandon the bill.

That is why we are joining other organisations who work with people seeking asylum, to call on the government to act now.

Take action and sign our joint petition to Boris Johnson urging him to respond to the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine:
