Ukraine: one year on

How you've helped change the lives of over 650,000 Ukrainians.

Thank you

Since the Ukraine conflict started on 24 February 2022, World Vision UK has received almost £10m from the UK public - with more than £7m coming through the DEC's joint appeal.

Thanks to your support we've been able to reach over 656,000 Ukrainians - including 251,000 children - with food, shelter, cash, hygiene kits, education, medical supplies, child friendly spaces and more. 

Your help has been a lifeline.

How your donations are helping

Thanks to your support, World Vision has been responding from the start of this conflict, both with essential lifesaving aid like food, basic supplies, access to warm places to stay and clean water, and protecting children’s development through education, child protection, and psychosocial programmes. 

Investing in education, child protection and mental and psychosocial support for children are key priorities for World Vision’s work in Ukraine and neighbouring countries. We're investing in early childhood education, catch-up lessons, and opportunities to have fun with other children and forget the war for a bit. All education programming is integrated with mental health and psychosocial support and preventing sexual exploitation and abuse work.

Over the last year, we reached over 30,000 children in Ukraine through education programmes, including distributing over 4,800 back to school kits.

Our work goes on

We were among the first to respond to the Ukraine crisis, and we're committed to delivering long-term support over the next two to three years, helping children and families rebuild their lives over the longer term.

Across the world today, over 36 million children are refugees or have been displaced from their homes. Along with responding to their most urgent needs of food, clean water and medical help, we also give families hope for the future - by providing education, income generating opportunities, child protection training and more.
