In late February 2022, attacks by Russian forces on multiple cities in Ukraine have since led nearly 6 million people to become refugees.
As war spreads throughout Ukraine, people are fleeing the country. They are exhausted, scared and many are suffering from hunger, dehydration or hypothermia. Our teams in Ukraine have had to suspend our usual medical activities.
We are now scaling up our emergency response in Ukraine and in neighbouring countries. In addition to Ukraine, we have teams responding in Poland, Moldova, Hungary, Slovakia, Russia and Belarus.
