UNHCR | Support families fleeing Ukraine
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 their first winter away from home – many having left behind their families, support networks and winter essentials.
UNHCR teams are on the ground providing winter supplies, emergency cash assistance for the most vulnerable and helping reinforce homes and shelters against the harsh weather.
Your support can help ensure that families from Ukraine forced to flee are safe and warm.

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 displaced people in need as temperatures plummet, such as high thermal blankets.
We have stockpiles of aid already inside Ukraine and more life-saving items being shipped to neighbouring countries as we speak. 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.

UNHCR is urgently upscaling emergency operations 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 separate children, women and older people, who are the vast majority of those fleeing 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.
