Update: Support Children and Families in Ukraine

By Marisa Ferguson | Assistant Director, Global Cause Partnerships


Dear Friend,

For two long years, the children of Ukraine have withstood relentless hardships. Two years of destruction and displacement, violence, separation from family members and friends, loss of loved ones, and disrupted schooling, health care and social services have led to a mental health crisis and a learning crisis among Ukraine’s children. Their classrooms moved into basements, and their playgrounds littered with mines and other remnants of war – which now cover a third of the country.

As the intensified war drags into a third year, maintaining hope is essential. Ukraine’s children need this war to end. They also need sustained commitment and resources to be able to recover. Thanks to generous supporters like you, UNICEF is continuing to respond in Ukraine and neighboring host countries to address the evolving needs of children and their families. So far, UNICEF has been able to achieve the following results for children and families in Ukraine and refugee-hosting countries:

  • 10.6 million children and women accessed primary health care in UNICEF supported facilities and mobile teams
  • 4.5 million students accessed formal or non-formal education, including early learning
  • 7.5 million children and caregivers accessed community-based mental health and psychosocial support 
  • 360,000 housholds reached with UNICEF-funded humanitarian cash transfers in Ukraine 
  • 1.1 million people accessed sufficient quality water

In partnership,
Marisa Ferguson
