Nearly 5.4 million refugees from Ukraine recorded across Europe

Since the crisis began in late February, almost one-third of the population of Ukraine have fled their homes, including 5.4 million refugees.

  • Nearly 5.4 million refugees from Ukraine recorded across Europe

  • 10,631 civilian casualties in Ukraine, as of June 27

  • Hundreds of thousands of people without water and electricity

  • Millions will need psychosocial support and protection

Across the globe, people’s lives are being turned upside down by conflict.

All around the world, people are being forced by conflict to flee their homes with only the items they can carry.

Scared and away from everything they know, they need support to rebuild their lives.

People in Crisis – more than 13 million people displaced

In just over two months, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) estimates that over 7.7 million people have been displaced within Ukraine, and almost 6 million have fled to neighbouring countries.

Concern has deployed an emergency response team to support the people of Ukraine. As millions of people go in search of safety, it's time to act.

“Families, including many with small children, are fleeing with whatever clothes and food they can carry, in bitterly cold conditions, often facing huge queues to reach safety,” said Concern CEO Dominic MacSorley. 

“This war is not going to end quickly. 13 million people don’t easily get to go home and rebuild their lives.” Ros O’Sullivan, Concern’s Head of Emergency Response

The situation in Ukraine is likely to worsen. Concern’s teams on the ground require continued and immediate support to deliver life-saving aid to the people inside Ukraine who need it most, including:

  • Cash assistance – for rent and other essentials
  • Survival kits – including bedding, blankets, cutlery and tableware
  • Hygiene kits – including toilet paper, soap and other cleaning items
  • Baby kits – including nappies, wipes and soaps

More families need your help

Sadly, Ukraine is just one of the countries where we are responding right now.

Concern has worked with survivors of conflict, disaster and those living in extreme poverty for the past 50 years.

We go wherever the threat is greatest and stay for the longest term. We are currently providing life-saving support to families in conflict zones in more than 20 of our countries of operation, but we need your support to help them rebuild their lives.

By becoming a regular donor to Concern you can help us continue to provide life-saving support to people affected by conflict all around the world.
