As you read this, lives are being lost.

Intense conflict in Ukraine is threatening the lives and livelihoods of civilians across the country, causing hundreds of thousands to flee. Homes have been destroyed or are unsafe to live in. Essential services have been hit. Families have been separated. People have been injured. Lives have been lost.

After long nights spent sheltering in dark basements with the sound of rocket fire and gun shots thundering overhead, the children of Ukraine have been forced away from their homes and the safety and normality of the lives they once knew.

The ongoing crisis in Ukraine has already forced millions of people to flee their homes, and families are desperately trying to escape from cities under fire.

Their childhood is under attack.

Children are forced to witness the horrors of conflict and crisis.

A child whose family has been torn apart as they say goodbye to fathers, brothers, and uncles, not knowing if or when they will see them again.

These experiences take a very heavy toll on children’s mental health, leaving invisible scars.

These children are in urgent need of care and relief.

It is clear that our expertise in child protection is desperately needed. As is your help.

Ukraine one year on

In the darkest moments, we need hope. With your ongoing support, children from Ukraine have found safety, warmth, a new school and someone to talk to. But one year on, the conflict in Ukraine continues, with no end in sight to the fighting or the suffering.

Because of you, we are here, alongside our partners, and will be until we are no longer needed. Please continue supporting children.
