A child who has fled Ukraine

The escalating conflict in Ukraine is putting the lives and well-being of the country’s 7.5 million children in immediate danger. 

Humanitarian needs across the country are multiplying every day as more and more families are forced to flee their homes as a result of the conflict.

UNICEF teams are on the ground in Ukraine, and neighbouring countries, providing access to critical, life-saving services and support. This includes access to healthcare, drinking water, mental health and psychosocial support and education.

As the conflict continues to escalate, it is estimated that up to 5 million people – mainly women and children – could seek refuge in neighbouring countries as they are forced from their homes.

The time to act is now. Please give what you can to support.

This conflict poses an immediate and growing threat to the lives and well-being of the country’s 7.5 million children. Damage to civilian infrastructure has left hundreds of thousands of people without safe water, electricity or water. UNICEF remains committed to staying on the ground. UNICEF has 140 staff working across five offices on both sides of the contact line, including Kramatorsk, Mariupol, Luhansk and Donetsk and now Lviv. UNICEF is working around the clock preparing to scale-up operations when the easing of access and security limitations permit humanitarian operations to be rolled out in the hardest-hit areas.
I created my Fund with UNICEF because I want a world where children grow up safe from violence, war, poverty and hunger.
