In late February 2022, attacks by Russian forces on multiple cities in Ukraine have since caused the displacement of over 7.7 million people.
As war spreads throughout Ukraine, people are fleeing the country. They are exhausted, scared and many are suffering from dehydration or hypothermia. Our teams in Ukraine have had to suspend our usual medical activities.
We are now scaling up our emergency response in Ukraine and in neighbouring countries. In addition to Ukraine, we have teams responding in Poland, Moldova, Hungary, Romania, Slovakia, Russia and Belarus.
Our Current Emergency Response in and around Ukraine
We are in a race against time in Ukraine to get emergency medical supplies to the right places as quickly as possible.
