Challenge

Russia's invasion of Ukraine and the fighting, shelling, and airstrikes, have continued to destroy the homes and livelihoods of civilians. As a result, many have fled the conflict in order to seek refuge in neighboring countries. It is estimated that 75% of those fleeing are women and girls, who are most at risk of gender-based violence. There have also been increasing media reports of racism against Black people and people of color who are being refused access to relief.

Solution

Thanks to our local partnerships in Poland, Romania, Hungary, and Moldova, our response will be focused on preventing gender-based violence, providing counselling support, and strengthening the leadership of women and young people in crisis. We will also be meeting immediate needs of refugees with food and non-food essential items like shelter, hygiene kits, and dignity kits.

Long-Term Impact

ActionAid's response is community-driven, women-led, and rights-based, which means your donation today invests in change that lasts. ActionAid's support provides both short-term crisis response as well as long-term resilience building.
