UKRAINE CRISIS: A WAVE OF SOLIDARITY IN RESPONSE TO THE CRISIS SITUATION IN UKRAINE

Since 24 February 2022, the world has been stunned by the humanitarian tragedy unfolding in Eastern Europe. Following the invasion of Ukraine by Russian forces, the partners of the Rescue & Recover Fund mobilised on the ground to provide emergency aid to civilian victims.

Following these tragic events, CARE, MSF and the Red Cross, partners of the RRF, deployed teams in the field to provide additional assistance to the victims of this conflict. From the distribution of food, water and hygiene kits, to financial and psychosocial support and medical assistance, the various NGOs immediately rallied their teams on-site to help the populations in need. Thanks to the generosity of RRF donors, more than 3 million euros have already been donated to support actions in the field!

CARE

With the help of local partners, CARE is working in Ukraine with the NGO People in Need to provide emergency aid to the victims of the conflict. Teams are distributing basic necessities such as hygiene kits, nappies, water, sleeping bags and mattresses. The organisation has also set up sanitary facilities and heated tents at the Slovak border to provide the best possible conditions for refugees, especially women and children.

In Romania, CARE is working with SERA, which promotes the protection of vulnerable children. SERA is collaborating with the Romanian authorities and other organisations to organise the reception and support of refugee families.

CARE is also working on providing a response beyond these initial emergency actions in Romania and Moldova, where needs assessments and psychosocial assistance have been conducted.

Red Cross

The local branches of the Ukrainian Red Cross are working to respond to humanitarian needs on the ground as a matter of urgency. In the first two weeks of the conflict, 90,000 people received emergency humanitarian aid and 48,000 people were evacuated. The 8,000 people taking shelter in Kiev's underground stations received food and basic necessities. A team of specialists was also deployed to assist the inhabitants in the disposal of unexploded ordnance.

In countries bordering Ukraine, the National Societies of the Red Cross are providing emergency humanitarian assistance to people who have fled the country. The teams are providing medical care, handing out food, and taking steps to maintain and restore family links (distribution of SIM cards).

The Red Cross is also active in France, where it is providing voluntary support to the telephone response unit of the Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs, helping to welcome Ukrainian refugees, and implementing actions to re-establish family connections.

DOCTORS WITHOUT BORDERS

Since the beginning of the Russian offensive in Ukraine, MSF teams have been transporting medical supplies and staff into the country to support hospitals and people in the most affected areas. They are also providing medical support to refugees in neighbouring countries.

MSF is assessing and responding to the needs of people arriving in countries bordering Ukraine. The teams are also conducting assessments along Ukraine's borders and preparing for a range of scenarios to best adapt their operational response.
