Help protect children in Ukraine

It’s been almost two years since the escalation of the war in Ukraine on 24 February 2022. A generation of children in Ukraine has spent more than 600 days engulfed by violence, fear, loss and tragedy.

4.1 million children in Ukraine need support.

“Millions of children are going to sleep cold and scared and waking up hoping for an end to this brutal war. Children have been killed and injured, and many have lost parents and siblings, their homes, schools and playgrounds. No child should ever have to bear that kind of suffering.” said Catherine Russell, UNICEF Executive Director.

The situation is especially acute for the 3.7 million people who are currently displaced within Ukraine.

We are working around the clock in Ukraine and at the borders of neighbouring countries, providing access to clean water, health care services and other critical support.

With your help, we can help more children and families affected by this crisis.

Please donate to help protect children in Ukraine.
