"I hope this war will come to an end very soon. I want to return home, to my family, to my friends, to my job. I want to back to the normal life." - Mira Chmel, who have fled Ukraine with her daughter and receiving support from IFRC and Romanian Red Cross through a multi-purpose cash programme in Romania.

 

One year after the escalation of conflict in Ukraine has left behind unsurmountable suffering, death, and destruction. Over 18 million people have lost their homes. Many are in limbo, trying to figure out their next move-perhaps to a new place or returning to uncertainty or danger. It is estimated that more than 17.7 million people would need humanitarian support, including women, children, the elderly and people with disabilities. The Red Cross continues to address the humanitarian needs with emergency and long-term assistance.

 

As millions of people have been displaced, more than 124,000 Red Cross volunteers and staff have been mobilized to deliver assistance in Ukraine and bordering countries – Poland, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania, Moldova, Russia and Belarus – and in 17 additional countries in the region.

 

The Hong Kong Red Cross has allocated over HK$6.8 million to provide food, clean water, essential relief items, hygiene materials, and emergency cash to the displaced families in Ukraine, and refugees in Romania and Bulgaria.

 

Your donation to Ukraine Humanitarian Crisis will allow the Red Cross to provide emergency aid to those affected. We will also support long-term recovery according to humanitarian needs and evolving situation.
