War in Ukraine: displaced women and children desperately hoping to return home one day
Russia’s war against Ukraine is causing human suffering, loss of life and displacement. Over 10 million people were forced to leave their homes and some 12 million are not able to leave due to difficult security situation.
Millions of people are facing severe consequences of this military aggression. The EU has allocated €93 million in humanitarian aid to support those affected by the war. Our humanitarian partners have already established their presence all across Ukraine to provide aid to the ones who need it the most.
People in Need is one of such organisations. This Czech NGO is a long-standing EU humanitarian partner in Ukraine and despite the security concerns, they are currently on the ground helping the people in every way they can.
With EU humanitarian funding, they have already delivered 7 cargo trains full of goods to Kyiv and Dnipro, and from Dnipro further to Kharkiv and Donetska oblast.
In eastern Ukraine, where people have no longer access to shops or goods, they are providing food and hygiene parcels. In Moldova, People In Need is planning to provide cash assistance to help the Ukrainian refugees cover rent and other basic needs.
With EU humanitarian funding, People in Need has supported hundreds of thousands of vulnerable people in eastern Ukraine since 2014, by providing safe drinking water, sanitation, cash assistance, and psychosocial support.
Starting from 2017, the EU extended its funding to the ACCESS Consortium, a consortium of humanitarian non-government organizations led by People in Need.
