The humanitarian situation, particularly in the Eastern part of Ukraine, has been deteriorating since the political crisis led to an armed conflict in 2014. The UN estimates that there are 3.1 million people in need of humanitarian assistance in Ukraine, of which over half a million are children.
What We Do
Save the Children’s work addresses critical child protection, education and water, sanitation, and hygiene needs. Specifically, we are providing basic support to vulnerable children who have been evacuated from the areas of active conflict through the establishment of Temporarily Learning Spaces and Child Friendly Spaces. These initiatives provide psychosocial support and education in environments that respond to the needs of all children, including those with special needs. The project will also provide back-to-school kits for children, containing resources and basic educational materials to ensure that boys and girls transition back to school as quickly and smoothly as possible. We are also meeting the water, sanitation and hygiene needs of vulnerable families by distributing hygiene kits and water purification tablets.
