Conflict is escalating in Ukraine, putting millions of children and their families in immediate danger.
The whole child population of Ukraine, 7.5 million children, are now at risk as the conflict continues to escalate. With explosions in major cities across the country and thousands of families being forced to flee their homes, UNICEF is calling for an immediate ceasefire.
Hundreds of thousands of children in Ukraine have already been affected as the conflict in the east of the country enters its eighth year. As the conflict escalates, many more children are at risk, and thousands of families have been forced to flee for safety. Homes, schools, water supplies and hospitals have been damaged. Explosives including landmines are a daily threat to children’s lives.
UNICEF is especially concerned for the safety and wellbeing of children who have become separated from their families.
We are working round the clock to keep families safe.
Please donate to help protect children in Ukraine.
