Our emergency response in Ukraine
Since the conflict in Ukraine began in 2022, Plan International have responded to support children with shelter, hygiene, food essentials and protect them from trauma and abuse.
Thanks to your support, we’ve been able to support thousands of children and their families. This appeal has now closed, but you can still make a donation to help us respond to future emergencies.

HOW YOUR DONATIONS HELPED
Thank you to everyone for your generous donations. Your donations helped us to:

- support Plan International teams in Poland, Romania and Moldova
- collaborate and coordinate with agencies engaged in the emergency relief efforts
- provide safety and shelter to children and their families
- support the children of Ukraine with psychological and social support
- protect women and children from abuse and exploitation
- establish informal education and learning opportunities for children
- provide children with safe spaces to play and learn.
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.
We’re proud to be a founding member of Emergency Action Alliance, a collective of Australian based aid organisations that uses its reach and resources to save lives around the world.
When the Emergency Action Alliance launches a combined emergency appeal on behalf the member organisations, Plan International receives a proportion of the funds raised to put toward our humanitarian response. This is in addition to donations Plan International receives directly from generous people like you and allows us to extend our reach and be more effective, more quickly.
