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.

Support the people of Ukraine

Women and children urgently need the basics to survive, including food, water, shelter, hygiene, and dignity kits. Given the trauma of what they have had to witness and flee from, as ActionAid is also providing psychological support and safe spaces for women and girls to prevent gender-based violence and exploitation.
At Ukraine’s borders with Poland, Romania, Hungary, Slovakia and Moldova, millions of women and children are arriving with only what they can carry in their hands and on their backs. Once they arrive to relatively safety, they are then having to wait for prolonged periods of time in harsh, cold winter conditions.
The United Nations estimates that the number of refugees fleeing out Ukraine could reach 5 million, becoming Europe’s largest refugee crisis of this century. This is a humanitarian disaster which we cannot ignore. Please, support our work helping women and girls today.
