The escalation of conflict in Ukraine has caused thousands of civilian casualties, widespread destruction and has forced millions to flee their homes. More than 7.8 million refugees from Ukraine have fled to neighbouring countries and 6.5 million more are displaced internally. 

Considering the scale of humanitarian needs caused by the crisis, Plan International established a permanent presence in Ukraine in August 2022. 

​​​​​We work alongside Ukraine’s strong civil society organisations focusing on internally displaced persons, those returning to the country and communities in the newly accessible areas of Kharkiv, Mykolaiv, and Kherson Oblasts.

We ensure our work in Ukraine promotes gender equality and emphasises the social cohesion and inclusion of internally displaced people across the country. 

Our current priorities include:

  • Preventing violence against children 
  • Providing psychological support for children who have suffered distress 
  • Ensuring refugee children can continue their education 
  • Transferring cash to help families meet their immediate needs. 

Our work in Ukraine is part of a regional response to the Ukraine crisis which also includes programmes in PolandMoldova and Romania
