Ukraine War

The war in Ukraine is exacting a harrowing toll on the lives and wellbeing of the country’s 7.5 million children. 

More than 2.5 million children have already fled Ukraine to neighbouring countries, with that number continuing to grow.

Within Ukraine, millions more children and their families have been displaced. Their homes and possessions lost to the conflict.

Schools, hospitals, orphanages and vital infrastructure have all been damaged or destroyed.

The children of Ukraine need help now. 

Urgent Humanitarian Aid Needed 

Ukraine’s hospitals are running low on critical medical supplies and equipment. Without them children won’t receive the care they need.

Sick and injured children urgently need medical support. Without medicines, oxygen and life-saving equipment they’ll struggle to survive.

Right now the humanitarian needs are huge and are increasing by the hour. Communities have been cut-off with no access to clean water, food and health care.

UNICEF is on the ground, working to reach vulnerable children and families with essential services like medical supplies, education water and sanitation.

But we need YOUR help to deliver these life-saving supplies.
