Summary

Since the Russian invasion of Ukraine in February, over 5 million Ukrainians have fled to other European countries. Ukrainians seeking refuge in neighboring countries face many challenges. Global Fund for Children's local partners in the region are helping Ukrainian families to find housing, enroll their children in school, and access health care and other services.

Challenge

One of the many obstacles Ukrainian refugees face is being connected to and accessing local services such as safe housing, school enrollment, child-centered psychosocial support , and obtaining the right to work to provide for their families. Our local partners are connecting refugees from Ukraine-including non-European refugees living in Ukraine who have faced discrimination as they seek safety-to local services.

Solution

GFC is providing immediate and long-term flexible funding to more than 45 local partners in neighboring countries like Italy, Moldova and Romania that are working directly with Ukrainian refugees. This support enables GFC partners to connect Ukrainian refugees to local services, provide legal aid and vocational training, and ensure that children have access to education and psychosocial support.

Long-Term Impact

Families have been torn apart, with most Ukrainian men aged 18-60 banned from leaving the country. Access to psychosocial care is crucial during this difficult time and will allow children and their families to begin to work through the many traumas that come with living through a war. Helping children enroll and succeed in school and providing parents with vocational training will help displaced families to thrive and prepare for when they are able to safely return to Ukraine.
