3 years of conflict
Over three years of conflict displaced more than 2 million Ukranians from their homes.
Over 100,000 people were forced from Ukraine to seek asylum in other countries.
More than three years of conflict has left more than 2 million Ukrainians displaced from their homes. One million Ukrainians have sought asylum in neighboring countries. Many fled with barely anything in search of safety.
The conflict has impacted some of the most vulnerable populations in Ukraine – including single parents, the elderly and people with disabilities or chronic illnesses.
Despite a ceasefire in place since 2014, Ukrainian civilians continue to pay a very high price. Those living in towns closest to the front lines of the conflict still live with shelling and gunfire almost every day and night. Still others in small towns and villages face dire conditions – living in war-damaged buildings that lack heat and electricity.
The UNHCR needs help providing humanitarian aid to those from Ukraine. Winter assistance is essential in keeping displaced people healthy and safe during the winter months.
