In late February 2022, Russian forces attacked multiple cities across Ukraine, leading to full-scale war.

The intense fighting has led to 5.9 million people leaving Ukraine and becoming refugees in Europe.* Within Ukraine, over 3.6 million people remain displaced by the war.**

As war continues across Ukraine and people flee, our teams are responding to a severe humanitarian crisis, both in Ukraine and in neighbouring countries.

We currently have approximately 74 international and 567 Ukrainian staff working in response to the war in Ukraine. They work as medical staff (surgeons, doctors, nurses); psychologists; logisticians and administrators.
