Spanish club Real Madrid will donate one million euros ($1.10 million) to help those displaced in Ukraine following Russia’s invasion, the LaLiga leaders said on Wednesday.

Real said the funds would be donated to the Red Cross, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and other organisations working on the ground in Ukraine.

The UNHCR said approximately 2.97 million refugees have so far fled Ukraine, roughly 7% of the country’s population, since Russia’s invasion began on Feb. 24.
