DEC Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal

Families fleeing the conflict have left their homes with only the items they were able to carry.

The Disasters Emergency Committee need your help to provide food, water, shelter, healthcare and protection.

KEY FACTS

More than a million people have fled their homes to escape conflict in Ukraine. Leaving behind jobs, belongings and loved ones, they now face an uncertain future.

Intense conflict in Ukraine is threatening the lives and livelihoods of civilians across the country. Families have been separated. People have been injured. Lives have been lost. 

Homes have been destroyed or are unsafe to live in. Critical infrastructure such as health facilities, water supplies and schools have also been damaged or destroyed.

At Ukraine’s borders with Poland, Romania, Hungary, Slovakia and Moldova, huge numbers of people are arriving with only what they can carry. In many places there are long waits to cross and scant facilities waiting for them on the other side, with temperatures dropping below freezing overnight. 

There have also been increasing media reports of racism against people of colour who are being refused access to relief, aid and the right to cross the border to safety.

Revolution Radio is supporting the appeal and broadcasting the Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal message every hour during the current crisis.  Listen to the DEC appeal here:
