An escalation of the conflict in February 2022 has turned an already volatile situation into a full-scale emergency. People are fleeing their homes to try to find safety elsewhere within the country and are crossing borders into neighbouring countries. The situation remains extremely dangerous for anyone inside Ukraine and the vulnerability of those forced to flee is increasing rapidly, with more in need of immediate support.
UNHCR has declared Ukraine a Level 3 emergency – the highest level we have. In light of the rapidly evolving humanitarian crisis in Ukraine, Hostline is working with authorities, local communities, displaced community groups and partners to provide desperately needed humanitarian assistance.
We are on the ground in Ukraine and neighbouring countries to protect and assist people forced to flee.

- 2.9 million
