Summary

Russia's attack on Ukraine will lead to major civilian harm and massive displacement. The conflict has the potential to be the largest military action in Europe since WWII. U.S. intelligence projects up to 50,000 people could be killed or wounded. Further violence will devastate Ukraine's already weakened infrastructure. The country's health system, is fragile, and its economy has declined drastically. Food and fuel shortages are likely to be acute, public services rendered nonfunctioning.

Challenge

More than 10 million 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 4 million have fled to neighboring countries as refugees. A further 12 million people are estimated to be stranded or are unable to leave Ukraine due to increasing violence. Please give what you can to help the people of Ukraine.

Solution

We are working with partners in Poland to distribute medical equipment, provide information services through an existing hotline, offer legal guidance and psychological counseling, and facilitate access to services through social workers, interpreters and cultural assistants to displaced people. In Ukraine, we are providing evacuation services and essential items to those who have become displaced according to individual needs. This could include blankets, clothes, sleeping bags, cash, and more.

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 will strain the resources of Ukraine's neighbors, and it will impact supplies of Ukrainian-grown wheat and other food staples for countries like Yemen, Libya and Lebanon that are already facing acute levels of food insecurity. The world must prepare for the worst and provide critical relief.
