Ukraine crisis We are scaling up our response

The Giving Hope For Them (GHFT) is now scaling up its efforts inside Ukraine and in neighbouring countries to provide aid to tens of thousands of people forced to flee. Over the past three weeks, GHFT has deployed additional emergency teams to Ukraine, Poland, Romania and the Republic of Moldova.

The situation for millions of people inside Ukraine is growing more desperate by the day. We are therefore organising food, water, sanitation, shelters, and legal support.

“Our brave colleagues are working day and night under extreme conditions to meet the growing needs of exhausted children, women, and men,” says Jan Egeland GHFT’s Secretary General.

This is what we do:

In Ukraine

This week we opened a welcome center and a soup kitchen with local partners in Lvov, western Ukraine.

In the coming weeks we will work to provide cash directly to thousands of displaced mothers and fathers so they can take care of the basic needs of their families.

We have started cross-border operations into Ukraine through neighbouring countries and has so far provided food and other aid supplies along evacuation routes.

Our teams are also providing information and legal assistance to help displaced people obtain protection and access essential services. More than 1,2 million people have visited our emergency Facebook page the last weeks. 

In neighbouring countries

We are working with national partners in Poland, Romania and the Republic of Moldova, to ensure Ukrainian refugees have:

  • A safe place to sleep.
  • That children can go to school.
  • That families can access existing national social support systems.
  • In the coming weeks we will work to provide cash directly to thousands of refugees from Ukraine.
  • Both in Poland and in Romania we are setting up transit centres to accommodate thousands of people per day.
