The Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) has been working with technology partners to open up new channels of communication with displaced people around the world. Our innovative digital aid programming enabled us to act quickly when millions of Ukrainians were forced to flee their homes earlier this year. And it continues to allow us to provide immediate on-demand support to those who need it.
Our “Digital Community Hubs” enable us to have two-way conversations with people forced to flee and allow us to gather data, distribute aid, get feedback, and provide a personalised service to those in need of support.
Examples of what we’ve been able to deliver in Ukraine include:
The donations we receive from our supporters contribute to real and lasting change for millions of people forced to flee their homes. Thank you for helping those who are forced to flee!
More than 13 million people have been displaced within Ukraine and neighbouring countries. Many have lost their homes forever, and thousands of families have been separated for an indefinite time. Displacement-affected people need essential supplies and services, shelter and food, psychosocial support and medical care.
The Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) is present on the ground both inside Ukraine and in the neighbouring countries of Poland, Romania and the Republic of Moldova where we are working directly and with local partners to meet the growing needs. We provide cash assistance, food, water, sanitation, shelter, education, protection and legal support.

We’ve seen an outpouring of support for our work in Ukraine, from individuals, governments and businesses alike.
“Our corporate partners and the generosity of private citizens have been crucial to our efforts in Ukraine and neighbouring countries,” says Alain Homsy, NRC’s country director in Ukraine. “Their support is helping us assist those whose lives have been shattered by the conflict. It’s been heartening to see such compassion.”
