A humanitarian catastrophe is unfolding in Ukraine as the escalating violence puts millions of lives at risk and threatens to displace hundreds of thousands of innocent civilians.
CARE is supporting our local partner in Ukraine, People in Need, to distribute food, water, hygiene kits and money for supplies. People in Need is one of the largest aid organisations in Eastern Europe and has been providing humanitarian assistance in Ukraine since the beginning of the conflict in 2014.
We will also be working with local partners in neighbouring countries to provide support to the families who have fled Ukraine for safety.
