Ukraine is in crisis, and over a million people have been displaced as intense conflict with Russian forces sweeps across the country. As the Ukrainian people face imminent danger, children and families are fleeing for their lives to nearby countries where our partners are mobilising to help them in their time of greatest need.  

The death and injury tolls are climbing fast, especially among the many who have stayed or been unable to get out. Tearfund’s partners are responding to the needs of Ukrainian refugees who have crossed the borders and for those who remain.
