Islanders in Guernsey have now donated more than £300,000 to the Bailiff's Disaster Relief Fund for Ukraine.
Richard McMahon says the people are continuing to show 'incredible generosity'.
"I have been amazed by the amount contributed, which has been boosted by some incredibly generous donations, and appreciate the wonderful efforts of all those who have arranged events and activities with a view to the proceeds going to the Fund.
Unfortunately, the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine continues with more and more people affected by the war, the increased bombing of towns and cities, and the vast exodus of refugees forced to flee their homeland to escape the invasion. Their plight is beyond anything we can comprehend."
The first tranche of £200,000 has been transferred to the Disasters Emergency Committee.
The English-registered charity works with leading independent humanitarian agencies to ensure money given by the British public is put to the best use to respond to major disasters overseas.
