Since mid-February 2022, war has been raging in the country in eastern Europe. Since men have been drafted into military service, mainly women and children are fleeing to neighbouring countries. In the first two months, more than 5 million people have fled, and it is estimated that a further 7.1 million people are fleeing within the country.

Together with project partners, AWO International supports emergency aid on the ground. This includes, for example, aid deliveries to various Ukrainian cities and projects to provide accommodation and psychosocial support for internally displaced persons. In addition, refugees in transit are cared for.

Humanitarian aid in Ukraine

Against the backdrop of the ongoing Russian war of aggression in Ukraine, millions of people have already had to leave their homes, including many children and young people. According to the United Nations, 18 million people in Ukraine are dependent on humanitarian aid. AWO International has been active in emergency relief on the ground together with local partner organisations since February 2022.
