Displaced Ukrainian Families
Displaced Ukrainian Families

Current Situation: Just over 6 million people have now fled Ukraine, and 8 million people have been displaced internally within Ukraine, and a further 13 million stranded inside the country due to heightened security risks, damage to railways and other infrastructure The humanitarian needs are enormous as millions find themselves with limited access to basic services like water, sanitation, healthcare and shelter As the conflict continues, people are feeling uncertain and afraid, with every day bringing new challenges There is a growing sense of uncertainty among those who have fled over whether to start to rebuild and settle or plan to go back home.
