The organisation has been working in Ukraine since 2014. Their operations in the country are among the 10 largest ICRC operations worldwide with a team of over 600 staff members. Working closely with the Ukrainian Red Cross Society, they are increasing their response to the humanitarian needs in Ukraine.
The ICRS’s support includes emergency assistance such as provision of food, water, and other essential items. The ICRC also supports hospitals and primary healthcare facilities with medical equipment and emergency preparedness. They repair water stations and support households to rehabilitate their damaged homes. They also help families that have been separated by the conflict reconnect.
The ICRC also provides immediate practical advice and news updates on the Ukraine crisis – their www site being a vital information tool for anyone affected by the crisis in the Ukraine.
The ICRC states:
“As the security situation allows, the ICRC is responding to urgent humanitarian needs and must be able to continue their life saving work. ICRC water engineers and doctors aim to help more than 3 million people access clean water and improve the living conditions of more than 66,000 whose homes have been damaged by heavy fighting.”
At the time of writing The GoldenPeaks Capital Foundation is supporting 10 different initiatives within and outside the Ukraine to help relieve the humanitarian crisis there. The ICRC is a core part of the Foundation’s strategy and we are delighted to be making a contribution.
