Ukraine Humanitarian Crisis: VOICE Members' response

According to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNCHR), currently, more than a quarter of the population of Ukraine has been forced to flee their homes. More than 4.3 million refugees have fled Ukraine, making it the fastest growing refugee crisis since World War II. In addition, 7.1 million people have been displaced internally. As always when a crisis happens, humanitarian NGOs have been at the frontline. They have been rapidly mobilising funding and support to deliver humanitarian aid in Ukraine and in the neighbouring countries in cooperation with many local partners, despite the difficult humanitarian access and International Humanitarian Law (IHL) violations. 

They have been supporting the most vulnerable in the country – delivering food, assisting internally displaced people, protecting women and children on the move and carrying out other vitally needed humanitarian actions. The conflict in Ukraine has had a knock-on impact on humanitarian needs worldwide and has contributed to rising global food prices and economic instability. With the increasing funding gap and the growing needs, our joint efforts at European and national levels to advocate for principled humanitarian aid have been more relevant than ever.
