Summary

GlobalMedic has worked closely with local Ukrainian partners over the years. We are supporting internally displaced people as well as those exiting Ukraine into neighbouring countries with food, shelter, clean drinking water, hygiene items and more. We will continue to evaluate needs and gaps to see where programming can be most effective.

Challenge

Since February 24, 2022, an estimated 6.1 million people have fled Ukraine and while some people are beginning to return home, there are still 6.3 million internally displaced people across the country. Neighbouring countries have seen waves of refugees crossing their borders, seeking safety and support.

Solution

Our Rapid Response Teams have been on the ground in Moldova, Romania and Ukraine providing support for Refugees fleeing Ukraine. The RRT team has distributed 45,350 food kits within Moldova and sent an additional 650 food kits across the border into Ukraine. From Romania, we have distributed 16,236 food kits in Ukraine and 436 in Romania. In Ukraine, we have hired kitchens in Ukraine to provide 7,908 hot meals and 3,825 bagged lunches in Lviv, and 7,800 hot meals in Odesa.

Long-Term Impact

As much as possible, GlobalMedic is purchasing aid in Ukraine and neighbouring countries in order to strengthen the economy and encourage host communities to continue welcoming refugees with open arms. We have shipped firefighting gear to strengthen capacity of local firefighters. We are also exploring longer term opportunities where Ukrainians are hired to help support refugees and internally displaced people.
