Ukraine: Millions of people need humanitarian aid
War has been raging in eastern Ukraine since 2014. As a result of the fighting in the Luhansk and Donetsk regions, numerous people have already been killed or driven from their homes. The fear of war and violence has been part of everyday life for the population in eastern Ukraine for years.
The conflict escalated in February 2022. Since then, there has been fierce fighting between Russian troops and Ukrainian forces in large parts of the country. Tens of thousands of people have already fallen victim to the fighting, including many civilians. 8 million people, mostly women and children, have fled to neighboring countries such as Poland, Moldova, Hungary and Romania. An estimated 5.9 million Ukrainians are on the run within the country.
The refugees can often only take the bare necessities with them. There is a lack of food, medicine, hygiene articles and safe accommodation. In addition, large parts of the civilian infrastructure have been damaged or destroyed as a result of the fighting. Especially in the freezing winter months, many fear for their survival. 17.7 million people are dependent on humanitarian aid – more than a third of the Ukrainian population.
+++ We are currently providing emergency aid to those affected by the flood disaster caused by the dam burst in the Kherson region. +++
We are distributing relief supplies, equipping emergency shelters and facilitating evacuations. For this, we are urgently dependent on donations.
We are currently distributing food packages, hygiene items and hot meals to refugees and other people affected by the war. We offer psychosocial support, especially for children, strengthen local medical care and provide information on safe spaces, evacuations and general protection measures.
In the spirit of helping people to help themselves, we support families with financial aid, for example for accommodation costs.
In addition, we provide medical and social assistance to Ukrainian refugees in Moldova, for example by sending mobile medical units and caring for children in refugee shelters.
