Even before recent events, Ukraine has been impacted by years of conflict and uncertainty. At the end of 2021, almost three million people in Ukraine needed humanitarian support, including more than 850,000 people who were displaced by conflict.
UNHCR has been working in Ukraine since 1994, alongside local authorities, partners and community organisations to deliver protection and humanitarian assistance to people in need and remains on the ground to help now.
UNHCR has stockpiles of aid, cash and other means to help people forced to flee and provided that humanitarian access and safety is granted.
Filippo Grandi, UN High Commissioner for Refugees, said:
“We are helping and can do more in areas like protection and registration, organising reception capacity, providing emergency relief and cash assistance, and in identifying and responding to the needs of the most vulnerable, many of them women and children, including a growing number of unaccompanied and separated children.”
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. UNHCR is a core part of the Foundation’s strategy and we are honoured to contribute to their scaling initiatives.
