LONDON — Roger Federer is offering financial help to Ukrainians during Russia’s invasion of the country.

Federer wrote Friday on social media that his foundation will donate $500,000 “to establish access to continued schooling for Ukrainian children.”

Russia invaded Ukraine on Feb. 24 and has been attacking schools, hospitals and buildings where people sought safety in various cities.

“My family and I are horrified seeing pictures from Ukraine and heartbroken for the innocent people who have been so terribly affected,” Federer wrote. “We stand for peace.”

Federer and his wife are the parents of two sets of twins.

Three-time major champion Andy Murray announced March 8 that he would “be donating my earnings from my prize money for the rest of the year” to humanitarian efforts aimed at helping children in Ukraine.
