Challenge

Since February 24, 2022, an estimated 7.3 million people have fled Ukraine and while some people are beginning to return home, there are still 7.1 million internally displaced people across the country. Neighbouring countries have been seeing waves of refugees crossing their borders, seeking safety and support.

Solution

Our Rapid Response Teams are on the ground in Moldova and Romania, purchasing food, hygiene items, mattresses, bedding and more for Refugees fleeing Ukraine. In Ukraine, we have hired kitchens in Lviv and Odesa to provide free meals at the train station to those who have fled their homes. This allows local staff to continue working while supporting fellow Ukrainians. We have also flown a shipment of medical supplies to Poland, to be transferred to healthcare facilities.

Long-Term Impact

Host communities can quickly become overwhelmed by an influx of refugees. As much as possible, GlobalMedic is purchasing aid locally in order to strengthen the economy and encourage host communities to continue welcoming refugees with open arms. We are also exploring longer term opportunities where refugees would be hired to prepare food kits to support food insecure refugees.
