UNHCR | Help refugees and families affected by the war in Ukraine

As the full-scale war in Ukraine enters its third year, the needs remain immense and continue to grow. This cannot become a forgotten crisis.

Many vulnerable people inside the country are living in damaged homes or in buildings that are not suited to protect them from the harsh weather. Outside Ukraine, refugees are facing winter away from home once again – many having left behind their families, support networks, and winter essentials.

UNHCR and partners are working on the ground in Ukraine and in refugee-hosting countries, providing shelter, cash assistance, and protection services and supporting the inclusion of refugees in host countries. Continued full-scale war in the country means that people are losing their homes, livelihoods, and their loved ones every day.

The recent massive attacks across Ukraine - during the Christmas holidays and continuing into the new year - claiming lives, injuring many, and destroying homes and vital infrastructure, once again illustrate the threats to life and security that have forced millions to flee Ukraine and that qualify them for protection as refugees.

We rely on your generosity to continue providing essential, life-saving relief to people whose lives have been shattered by the war.

How does UNHCR help refugees from Ukraine?

With teams across Ukraine and in neighbouring countries hosting refugees from Ukraine, UNHCR is providing protection and humanitarian assistance, including emergency shelters, repairs for homes damaged by shelling, emergency cash assistance, and protection such as psychological support. Winter relief is also provided for internally displaced people in need as temperatures plummet, such as high thermal blankets.

What can I do to help refugees from Ukraine?

We have stockpiles of aid inside Ukraine and neighbouring countries. We urgently need cash donations to help fulfill these supplies and to provide cash assistance directly to refugees from Ukraine and those who are displaced within the country so they can purchase the essentials they need. Your gift will make a huge difference in the life of a refugee or an internally displaced person. Our teams are on the ground right now working with forcibly displaced people and providing them with life-saving aid, shelter and protection support. For company donations please write to [email protected]

 

What do refugees from Ukraine need?

UNHCR is urgently responding across Ukraine and in neighbouring countries to support people forced to flee the current crisis. Urgent needs include shelter, relief items such as blankets, sleeping mats, jerry cans to carry clean water, and protection services especially for those most vulnerable, such as unaccompanied and separated children, women and older people, who are the vast majority of those who have fled their homes.

 

In the event that our Ukraine emergency response becomes fully funded, your donation will provide life-saving support to people forced to flee in emergencies worldwide.
