Ukraine Crisis Response Plan

Nearly four years of ongoing conflict in Eastern Ukraine has had a significant impact on all aspects of life for pensioniers like Maria and all communities in the Donbas region. The protracted nature of the crisis has paralyzed economic activity and severely reduced household coping capacities on both sides of the 457 km contact line. IOM is seeking US$37.8 million for its emergency and recovery programmes to the end of 2108.

Conflict and the Elderly: Perspectives from Ukraine

Kyiv - Ukraine has more than one million Internally Displaced People (IDPs) and the United Nations estimates that 60% of the registered ones are pensioners. Elderly are among the most vulnerable groups and are often neglected in situation of conflict and violence. Frequently, they have mobility problems and less physical strength to hide, flee or defend themselves from violence. As families and communities disintegrate, elderly might be left behind.

Back in Control

Kyiv - Over 230,000 Ukrainians became victims of human trafficking since 1991, according to the latest research commissioned by the International Organization for Migration (IOM) – the UN Migration Agency. IOM started helping Ukrainians who had fallen prey to traffickers in 2000, with funding from donors and in cooperation with a network of partner non-government organizations throughout the country. Over seventeen years later, the UN Migration Agency has helped more than 13,000 trafficking survivors return to a dignified life.

Cash Assistance to Vulnerable IDPs in Ukraine

Kyiv - In 2016, IOM provided cash assistance to over 6,000 vulnerable internally displaced persons (IDPs) in 13 regions of Ukraine within the project, funded by the Government of Germany. Elderly people aged 70 and over, families with three or more children, disabled people, and single-headed IDP families were provided UAH 1,980 (USD 70) per person in two rounds of payments. Almost a half of the project beneficiaries were minors. According to Ukraine’s Ministry of Social Policy, there are over 1.6 million officially registered IDPs in the country.
