Support Older People in Ukraine

Summary

As a result of the Russian invasion, the lives of millions of older Ukrainians are at risk. They're in danger of being displaced by the conflict, denied access to essential services or forced to flee to neighboring countries. Those unable to move are often abandoned in war-torn areas. One-fourth of Ukrainians are 60+ and more than half said the war had harmed their mental health. We're working with our partners on the ground to provide food, medicine, hygiene supplies, home-based care and more.

Challenge

Older Ukrainians are in desperate need of humanitarian support. As a result of the Russian invasion, the lives of millions of older people are at risk. They are in danger of being displaced by the conflict, denied access to essential services - like health or pensions - or forced to flee to neighboring countries. Those unable to move are often abandoned in war-torn areas.

Solution

HelpAge staff and volunteers provide humanitarian assistance to older people within Ukraine and refugees in neighboring countries. We provide food, medicine, hygiene supplies, and home-based care to older people, their families, and communities.

Long-Term Impact

Older people are overlooked in the humanitarian response and do not have access to the support they need. We are changing that.
