The international armed conflict between Russia and Ukraine is fueling a devastating humanitarian crisis that is affecting the lives of millions of people. We have worked in Ukraine since 2014 and since 24 February 2022, we have massively scaled up our response to meet the rising needs.

We have over 800 staff working in 8 locations across Ukraine to deliver relief items to displaced people, provide medicines and supplies to health care facilities, restore water supply for millions of people, and other lifesaving activities.
