War in Ukraine has resulted in at least 4,302 civilian deaths and an additional 5,217 civilian injuries, as of June 8, 2022 (midnight, local time), according to the UNHCR. Actual figures are believed to be considerably higher, particularly as reports of information from areas of heavy ongoing conflict – including the Donetsk, Kharkiv, and Luhansk regions – still pend confirmation. Over 15.7 million people are in urgent need of humanitarian aid, according to estimates from the UN and humanitarian partners.
Damage and destruction to residential areas and civilian infrastructure serves as a major obstacle to people accessing essential resources, such as water and food, as well as healthcare and other critical services. Many civilians in Ukraine are sheltering without basic aid and unable to be reached or evacuated safely. Additionally, unexploded ordnance poses major peril to civilians, as nearly half of Ukraine requires demining due to the ongoing military conflict, according to SESU.
As of June 9, 2022, nearly 7.3 million border crossings from Ukraine have been recorded since war activities commenced on February 24, 2022, according to UNHCR, resulting in the largest refugee crisis in Europe since World War II. A total of 4.8 million refugees have been recorded across Europe, 3.2 million of whom have registered for protective status in Europe. Of the Ukrainian diaspora, 2.3 million people have returned to Ukraine, though this does not indicate a long-term return to the country as volatile conditions persist.
More than 8 million Ukrainians (18% of total population) are currently internally displaced according to recent estimates from the International Organization for Migration (IOM). According to REACH, constant displacement of families and movement of internally displaced people (IDPs) has created significant challenge in acquiring accurate data on IDPs and their needs, limiting the effectiveness of humanitarian assistance.
CORE is working with international and local partners to address the urgent humanitarian needs of those affected by the war in Ukraine, with operations in Poland, Romania, and Ukraine. Its current activities include:
