Summary

Millions of people have been uprooted from their homes in Ukraine and are need of humanitarian assistance, in what has become the largest and fastest displacement crisis since World War II. Of these, over 6 million have fled to neighboring countries as refugees and millions more people displaced within Ukraine are also in need of urgent humanitarian assistance. Lifesaving needs include food, water, emergency shelter, health care and sanitation facilities, and protection and trauma counseling.

Challenge

As temperatures continue to drop, the ability to deliver aid amid constant shelling is severely impeded. According to OCHA, nearly 70 civilians have reportedly been killed, and at least 360 injured due to airstrikes across the country since December 29. Countless people in Ukraine today do not have access to water and electricity, as official data indicates that damages to energy infrastructure have left over 440 towns and villages without power supplies.

Solution

The IRC is scaling up its humanitarian response as several cities in Ukraine, where the IRC operates, have come under heavy shelling. We strongly condemn the attacks that not only result in massive loss of life and senseless civilian suffering but also exacerbate the already dire needs in the region. The IRC is scaling up financial assistance to support people suffering from intensified waves of shelling and running psychosocial and legal support activities across the region.

Long-Term Impact

The conflict may result in humanitarian suffering on a scale beyond what Europe has seen this century. It has weakened Ukraine's infrastructure and sent the country's economy into drastic decline. The war has strained the resources of Ukraine's neighbors and has impacted supplies of Ukrainian-grown wheat and other food staples for countries like Yemen, Libya, and Lebanon which are already facing acute levels of food insecurity. The world must continue to provide critical relief.
