Global Citizen Forum has partnered with UNHCR to provide humanitarian aid and support to refugees and displaced people affected by the escalating crisis in Ukraine.
For optimal support, UNHCR has focused its efforts within 5 critical areas: protection, shelter, basic survival needs, core of relief items, and cash assistance.
PROTECTION AND SUPPORT
UNHCR’s protection mandate involves identification of vulnerable groups and ensuring that their special needs are met. UNHCR is delivering on this critical need in Ukraine and neighboring countries through the identification and registration of individuals, setting up and running transit centers, multi-purpose cash assistance, and offering legal assistance and psychosocial support.
SHELTER AND CORE RELIEF ITEMS
Providing shelter and core relief items is a critical, life-sustaining intervention. This intervention offers critical relief items such as shelter repair materials and kits of emergency supplies, to protect from threatening surroundings, health risks, and other factors that can increase vulnerabilities of people forced to flee their homes.
Humanitarian coordination is an essential way to ensure a coherent and effective response to emergencies. In Ukraine, UNHCR coordinates the Protection and Shelter Clusters as part of the inter-agency Humanitarian Response Plan (HRP), together with UN sister agencies and partner NGOs.
FUNDING THE EMERGENCY RESPONSE
UNHCR urgently requires US$270 million to be able to deliver the emergency response inside Ukraine for an initial three-month period.
