Summary

Global Fund stands in solidarity with our local partners in Ukraine and the surrounding countries, who are supporting children and families effected by the Russian invasion of their country. GFC has created an emergency response fund for Ukraine to support our local partners who are providing critical services to children evacuating the country, and those staying in Ukraine and in need of emergency support. GFC's Emergency Fund is being used to provide fully flexible cash grants to our partners.

Challenge

As Russia's war on Ukraine drags on, children continue to suffer physical and psychosocial trauma from having their lives uprooted. Millions of Ukrainian children and their families have been displaced from their homes and are in immediate need of food, shelter, clothing, and psychosocial support. In addition to these living necessities, children are experiencing prolonged disruptions to their education, a serious threat during critical learning and developmental periods.

Solution

Since the start of the war in Ukraine, GFC has disbursed emergency grants totaling more than $3.1 million to support 76 community-based partners. GFC is sending emergency grants to grassroots partner organizations inside Ukraine, as well as to organizations in neighboring countries, like Moldova and Poland, that are supporting Ukrainian refugees. They are providing living necessities and offering emotional and educational support to children living under incredible stress.

Long-Term Impact

Working under extremely difficult conditions, our partners are doing whatever they can to keep children and youth safe. They are repurposing and renovating structures to create shelters, long-term housing, and educational spaces. They are helping families to purchase food, water, fuel, and clothing. They are providing basic necessities to families seeking refuge in western Ukraine and beyond. As the situation on the ground evolves, they will continue to adapt.
