People of Ukraine is supporting the children and families devastated by the war and emergency in Ukraine.
The humanitarian crisis in Ukraine is having a devastating impact on children and their families. Hundreds of thousands of people are fleeing their homes to find safety in other parts of the country or across Ukraine’s borders. As of May 23, over 6.5 million people have crossed into Poland, Romania, Moldova, Hungary and other countries, and millions more have been displaced. UNICEF, together with partners is at the forefront of the humanitarian response in Ukraine and bordering counties to provide essential services to war-stricken children and families.
The war in Ukraine poses an immediate and growing threat to the lives and well-being of the country`s 7.5 million children. It has been reported that almost every single second, a child becomes a refugee since the start of the war. According to the OHCHR, at least 227 children have been killed and over 322 children have been injured in Ukraine to date and many more will likely be impacted by psychological trauma.
People of Ukraine’s mission is to promote the unique culture, talent and potential of modern Ukraine in the U.S. and in Ukraine. Together, we will provide life-saving assistance to children and families in Ukraine and those fleeing to neighboring countries.
