The Lasallian Foundation is recognised by the Australian Ministry of Foreign Affairs as an ‘approved organisation’ under the Overseas Aid Gift Deduction Scheme to deliver and manage overseas aid activities in developing counties.
Besides its normal focus on supporting projects in Pakistan and Papua New Guinea, the Lasallian Foundation supports its international Lasallian partners in the event of a humanitarian disaster for which funding requests are received.
Lasallians have always aided people in need.
As thousands of Ukrainians – principally women and children – leave their homes
and emigrate to neighboring countries, Lasallians are responding compassionately by
financing emergency refugee relief.
Funds collected through the La Salle for Ukrainians Appeal will directly support humanitarian actions
by provisioning shelters, food, clothing, medical supplies, and other refugee needs.
The De La Salle Brothers have educational institutions in Hungary, Poland, Slovakia and
Romania. Assistance to refugees will be provided through the Lasallian educational institutions.

I invite all Lasallians to support “La Salle for Ukrainians” as a concrete way to reach out to our sisters and brothers who are seeking refuge from war. Information about how to show our love and support accompanies this letter. As we prepare to celebrate Easter, let us redouble our efforts to be builders of peace, witnesses to reconciliation and brightly shining beacons of hope. Let us raise our voices, and in the words of Pope Paul VI, shout from the rooftops “No more war, war never again!”.
Brother Robert Schieler, FSC
Superior General of the De La Salle Brothers
