UNHCR has been working in Ukraine since 1994, alongside local authorities, partners and community organizations. Ukraine has been affected by years of conflict and uncertainty — throughout these years, UNHCR has delivered essential aid to persons affected by the conflict, internally displaced people, refugees and stateless people in the country.
We work in both Government controlled and non-Government controlled areas of Ukraine to provide legal, social and humanitarian assistance such as winter clothing and blankets and provide psychosocial support and emergency shelter to people in need.
At the end of 2021, almost three million people in Ukraine needed humanitarian support including more than 850,000 displaced by conflict, 5,000 refugees and 36,000 stateless people.
Despite these challenges, UNHCR continues to stay and deliver for those who need us.
