Since the conflict started in eastern Ukraine in 2014, over 14,000 lives have been lost and over one million people have been internally displaced. The lives of hundreds of thousands of children and families throughout the country have already been severely disrupted. The information below refers to the activities we have been carrying out in the country since 2003. The most recent military action threatens the entire country, and our activities are already changing to provide specialised assistance in this emergency situation. We anticipate that more families and more children will need our support. SOS Children`s Villages is carefully monitoring the situation, has emergency plans in place and is committed to continue to provide support.
