As the festive season approaches, we can’t help but reflect on the magic and joy it brings to families worldwide. It’s a time when dreams come true and the spirit of generosity fills our hearts.
Yet, for families in Ukraine, this holiday season carries a different weight. Their dreams diverge from the usual wishes for toys or gadgets. Instead, they long for the basics we often take for granted – a home, food, water, and medicines.
Almost two years ago, the world came together to support Ukraine in its resistance for freedom and the right to be a part of civilized Europe. The ongoing war has caused a devastating humanitarian crisis in Ukraine. According to OCHA, 5.8 million refugees have left Ukraine, and 3.6 million have been internally displaced. Approximately 17.6 million people (49% of the current population) are now in need of humanitarian assistance and protection; 4.1 million of them are children. More than 1,000 attacks on the country’s healthcare system have been recorded, constituting a violation of international humanitarian law. In July, WHO Ukraine reported 1,067 attacks on the Ukrainian healthcare system, with 952 of them targeting hospitals. According to the WHO, this is the largest number of attacks recorded by the agency in any humanitarian emergency. Access to food, drinking water, medical services, and education for kids; assistance with accommodation; and demining liberated territories are the urgent basic needs Ukrainians face every day.
To address these problems, we launched the LUkraine Humanitarian Mission in August 2023 to assist people from close to the front line or liberated territories in Ukraine (Kherson, Zaporizhya, Donetsk, Kharkiv, Dnipro regions) who do not have access to medical and social services.
