How is UNICEF helping children and families in Ukraine?

  • Ramping up efforts to meet critical and escalating needs for safe water, health care, education and protection.
  • Delivering family hygiene kits, baby diapers, maternal health kits, institutional hygiene kits, disinfectants and bottled water to health and social institutions in eastern Ukraine.
  • Increasing the number of mobile child protection teams working between conflict lines.
  • Working with UNHCR and partners to activate Blue Dot hubs – one-stop safe spaces for children and women. Blue Dots provide key information to traveling families, help to identify unaccompanied and separated children and ensure their protection.
  • Continuing emergency response efforts to address the COVID-19 outbreak, including by working with municipalities to increase COVID-19 vaccination rates, and by strengthening awareness raising and capacity building efforts.
