Leeds United will be raising funds for the Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal at this Thursday’s Premier League match with Aston Villa at Elland Road, following the emergency caused by the ongoing conflict in Eastern Europe.

Outside the stadium, bucket collections will be taking place, Ukraine flags will be available to purchase for £6 and the club’s special Ukraine matchday programme can be purchased for £3.50, with all proceeds raised going to the appeal, set up by the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC).

You can donate online by CLICKING HERE or alternatively text DONATE to 70150 to donate £10 to help provide food, water, shelter, healthcare and protection (texts cost £10 plus your standard network charge).

At least two million people have fled their homes to escape conflict in Ukraine, leaving behind jobs, belongings and loved ones, they now face an uncertain future.

Intense conflict in Ukraine is threatening the lives and livelihoods of civilians across the country, families have been separated, people have been injured and lives have been lost.

Homes have been destroyed or are unsafe to live in, critical infrastructure such as health facilities, water supplies and schools have also been damaged or destroyed.

At Ukraine’s borders with Poland, Romania, Hungary, Slovakia and Moldova, huge numbers of people are arriving with only what they can carry. In many places there are long waits to cross and scant facilities waiting for them on the other side, with temperatures dropping below freezing overnight.

The DEC launches appeals during times of monumental suffering, which is the case in Ukraine right now.

- £30 could provide essential hygiene supplies for three people for one month

- £50 could provide blankets for four families

- £100 could provide emergency food for two families for one month
