The war in Ukraine is an immediate threat to children.
The conflict in Ukraine represents an immediate and growing threat to the lives and wellbeing of 7.5 million children from this country. Humanitarian needs are multiplying by the hour as the conflict is escalating. The needs are urgent and include the provision of necessary supplies, medical equipment, protection and humanitarian financial aid.
Children are dying, being wounded and are deeply traumatized by the violence all around them. Families are living in fear and uncertainty.

How is UNICEF helping children and families from Ukraine?
From 24 February, over 47,000 children affected by the war in Ukraine have been provided with psychosocial support and recreational activities. UNICEF has also launched a cash benefit programme to support 52,000 of Ukraine’s most vulnerable families.
From 28 March 2022, UNICEF has sent 114 trucks with 1,275 metric tonnes of emergency supplies to support children and families in Ukraine and neighbouring countries. 63 trucks with supplies have arrived in Ukraine, which will help meet the needs of over 8 million people, including 2 million children. The supplies include medicines and medical equipment, children’s winter clothes and hygiene, education, early childhood development and play kits.
