Eastern Ukraine: The lasting scars of conflict

19 January 2017

Ongoing conflict in eastern Ukraine is leaving lasting scars on people and their livelihoods. Ruined houses, damaged infrastructure, closed schools are among consequences of the hostilities. People living in villages along the contact line struggle through these difficult times enduring under perpetual risk of shelling or mine explosions.

Despite the threat, our teams are dedicated to help communities on both sides of the contact line to survive the conflict and to cope with its lasting consequences.
