Short Description:

The conflict in Ukraine has put children in danger of physical harm and severe emotional distress.

The Save the Children Romania teams are on the ground, near the border points with Ukraine, in the refugee centers in Maramureș, Suceava, and Galați, and are ready to provide humanitarian assistance to children and their families who are taking refuge from the war.

Save the Children International is a leading humanitarian organization for children. In partnership with RUF, Save the Children Romania will provide pre-packed emergency kits for 400 mothers and children.

 

Details:

More than 7.5 million children are trapped in the middle of the war in Ukraine, at risk of being displaced, separated from their families, and exposed to trauma, disruption of education, and access to medical services. Even before the escalation of the conflict, 2.9 million people in eastern Ukraine from Donbas called for humanitarian assistance, and 400,000 of them were children.
