HELP CHILDREN IN UKRAINE
CHILDREN'S EMERGENCY FUND
ALL UKRAINIAN CHILDREN ARE IN GRAVE DANGER NOW
The deaths of three children reported in the conflict in Ukraine shows that any war is a war against children, with fears that more innocent young lives will be lost if the fighting does not stop immediately.
At least 7.5 million children are in grave danger of physical harm, severe emotional distress, and displacement, following the recent escalation in hostilities. Explosions have been heard in the capital Kyiv and other major cities such as Kharkiv, forcing children and families into basements and bomb shelters.
Parents are trying to calm terrified children. Thousands of others are fleeing the capital, mostly by car. Temperatures in the capital are dropping below freezing, and displaced children may face long nights and days exposed to brutal conditions.
In times of humanitarian crises, when children are at their most vulnerable, Save the Children is there. We are always among the first organisations to deliver life-saving support for children and their families.
We distribute winter kits and hygiene kits, providing cash grants to families so they can meet basic needs such as food, rent and medicines. We also support children to overcome the mental and psychological impact of the conflict.
Please give to our Child Emergency Fund to allow us to respond wherever the need is greatest to reach children quickly with the essentials they need to survive.
