All children in Ukraine are in grave danger now. Any war is a war against children, and we have fears that more innocent young lives will be lost if the fighting does not stop immediately. Your donation will help us support kids regionally in Ukraine, as well as in surrounding countries like Poland and Romania where families are fleeing for safety.
Children in Eastern Ukraine have endured shelling and violence for the last eight years. At least 7.5 million children are in grave danger of physical harm, severe emotional distress, and displacement, following the recent escalation in hostilities. Parents are trying to calm terrified children. Thousands of others are fleeing the capital, mostly by car. Temperatures in the capital are dropping below freezing, and displaced children may face long nights and days exposed to brutal conditions.
With your donation, we can deliver essential humanitarian aid to children and their families during conflicts, including distributing essential humanitarian aid to children and their families, delivering winter and hygiene kits, providing cash grants to families so they can meet basic needs like food, rent and medicines, providing access to safe, inclusive, quality education, and working to help children overcome the mental and psychological impacts of conflict
In times of humanitarian crises, when children are at their most vulnerable, Save the Children is there. We are always among the first organizations to deliver life-saving support for children and their families. We stand ready to scale-up our operations to ensure children impacted by this crisis have the support they need to get through this crisis.
