Eight years of conflict have already left significant scars throughout Ukraine. 2.9 million people in the eastern part of the country are in urgent need of humanitarian assistance, and this number is rising dramatically.

“The population in eastern Ukraine has been suffering from the conflict for almost eight years now,” says Sofía Sprechmann Sineiro, CARE International Secretary General. “Every day is a fight for survival. Besides fear of attacks and violence, millions of people have no access to essential resources and services. The COVID-19 pandemic further exacerbates the situation.”

CARE International will work with People in Need to distribute urgently needed emergency supplies such as food, water, hygiene kits and cash to cover daily needs.
