‘Golfers for Ukraine’ UNICEF Appeal Launched

London, England: The global golf industry has launched an appeal to raise funds for UNICEF and its work supporting the people of Ukraine.

Leading golf bodies including The R&A, The PGA of Great Britain & Ireland, the Ladies European Tour, the DP World Tour and many other associations and governing bodies are promoting the hashtag #GOLFERSFORUKRAINE and the website golfersforukraine.com, where donations to support UNICEF’s work in Ukraine can be made.

As of March 10, the total raised stood at more than US$540,000. 

A statement from The R&A said: “We are truly saddened by what is happening in Ukraine and, like many others, want to help. We are working with other leading golf bodies to offer support by donating to UNICEF’s work in Ukraine. 

“Together we can make a significant difference and support UNICEF to deliver urgently needed materials such as health supplies, water and sanitation supplies, winter clothes for children, recreational kits and early childhood development kits to help with psychosocial support.”

Speaking ahead of this week’s Players Championship, PGA Tour Commissioner Jay Monahan said that the Tour and its players were fully behind the fund-raising appeal.

“Our hearts go out to the people of Ukraine and those caught in the crosshairs of the conflict. We hope for an end to this senseless violence and a peaceful resolution. The game of golf has a way of rallying around important causes and this is one,” said Monahan.

Those wishing to make a donation and show their support can do so via golfersforukraine.com. You can also spread the word by using the hashtag #GOLFERSFORUKRAINE on social media platforms.
