About Us

Effective Aid Ukraine is an Irish charity that has been working with disadvantaged people – primarily in Eastern Europe – for 24 years, and is now focussing exclusively on assisting Ukrainian refugees.

Previously known as IODP, our philosophy has always been to find ways of assisting in the most effective way possible.

In order to maximize effectiveness, it is usually best to focus on those most in need.

Although we provide support to Ukrainian refugees in Ireland – we have, for instance, found accommodation for approximately 100 and continue those efforts daily—our focus is on those refugees worst affected by the war, those who have lost their homes and are still in Ukraine and those relocated to Russian camps.
