Ukraine Crisis Appeal
Over 4.6 million people, have already fled their homes to escape the fierce conflict in Ukraine, most of them women and children. Leaving behind loved ones and almost everything they own, children and their families urgently need shelter, food, and water. Hundreds of thousands of people are living right now in Ukraine without any access to water, electricity, and heat.
Heavy fighting, shelling and air strikes across Ukraine are having a devastating impact on ordinary people lives. Homes and essential infrastructure have been damaged and destroyed in the escalating fighting. During conflicts and emergencies, women and children are at higher risk of gender-based violence and exploitation and those fleeing the conflict are traumatised from what they have seen.
ActionAid is rapidly responding right now to provide immediate protection and emergency support to those forced to flee in Poland, Hungary, Romania, Moldovia.
