Support Ukraine - International Efforts
The whole child population of Ukraine, 7.5 million children, are now at risk as the conflict continues to escalate. With explosions in major cities across the country and thousands of families being forced to flee their homes, UNICEF is calling for an immediate ceasefire.
Hundreds of thousands of children in Ukraine have already been affected as the conflict in the east of the country enters its eighth year. As the conflict escalates, many more children are at risk, and thousands of families have been forced to flee for safety. Homes, schools, water supplies and hospitals have been damaged. Explosives including landmines are a daily threat to children’s lives.
UNICEF is especially concerned for the safety and wellbeing of children who have become separated from their families.
We are working round the clock to keep families safe.
We urgently need your help to continue providing life-saving protection to families forced to flee their homes.
UNHCR has stepped up our operations and capacity in Ukraine and neighbouring countries. We remain firmly committed to support all affected populations in Ukraine and countries in the region.
Your support can help ensure that Ukrainians forced to flee their homes are sheltered and safe.
Save the Children
Ukraine's children are living in fear. They face ever-present danger – of being killed, injured or suffering severe emotional distress. The war is forcing children and families to shelter in basements and bomb shelters to escape explosions.
They have already lived through eight years of conflict, enduring violence, shelling, and being forced to flee their homes. 7.5 million Ukraine children are now in danger. Amid freezing temperatures, power cuts and food shortages, every day is a struggle to survive. Families are forced to flee their homes.
They need urgent help accessing water, shelter, and food.
The current emergency response is focused on purchasing medical supplies for critical situations like blood loss and other tactical medicine items. We have a large procurement team of volunteers that tracks down and purchases supplies and a logistics team that then gets them to Ukraine.
The funds will be used to purchase the supplies such as tourniquets bandages, combat gauzes, sterile pads, and satellite phones. We are working to collaborate with large US non-profits that provide medical supplies to countries in crisis. On the logistics side, we are arranging for warehouses and points of delivery in Poland and Ukraine. The Meest company has provided generous support by preparing airplanes for the fastest delivery.
