Where we work
Our annual report
Millions of people are fleeing Ukraine in search of safety. Most refugees crossing the border into Poland, Slovakia, Romania, Hungary and Moldova are women and children. In pictures, this is the reality for people fleeing the crisis in Ukraine.
Over four million people have fled Ukraine for neighbouring countries, and 6.5 million are internally displaced.
Residential buildings, schools, kindergartens and other infrastructure of the city have been destroyed.
Families, including many with small children, are fleeing with whatever clothes and food they can carry, in bitterly cold conditions, often facing huge queues to reach safety.
Right now, our team are on the ground in specific regions assessing the huge humanitarian needs.
Ukraine's health system is feeling the strain of the conflict, as residents face traumatic injuries and chronic conditions.
At Concern, we are working closely with our partners in Ukraine to provide impactful support to affected families.
In addition to the United Nations and our Alliance2015 partners, we have partnered with the Czech NGO, People in Need, and French NGO, ACTED, to better deliver life-saving humanitarian aid both within Ukraine and at the borders.
- Delivering food, hygiene items, trauma kits, nappies, sleeping bags and mats
- Providing essential supplies and supports to internally displaced families in Ukraine; access to clean water; psychosocial support for those traumatised by conflict and displacement via a telephone hotline.
- Supporting Ukrainian people at border crossings by providing food to children on the roads leading to the border with Poland, assisting with the building of toilets and heated tents, and providing hygiene supplies such as toothbrushes, toothpaste, shower gel, shampoo, and sanitary products.
What will happen next is unclear, but with your help we can respond and help families affected by the conflict through this crisis.
