AS Monaco joins the list of donors to the Red Cross organizations who are providing relief to those suffering from the violence, war and associated deprivation in Ukraine. The Monaco Red Cross, the Diocese of Monaco, the Mairie of Monaco and the many kind residents of Monaco have all been contributing to humanitarian aid due to this crisis to relieve suffering both within Ukraine and also with respect to the broader refugee crisis.
