Crisis Response Plan 2019

The conflict in eastern Ukraine has affected an estimated 5.2 million people, among whom 3.5 million require humanitarian assistance and protection. Most people in need live in the conflict-affected Luhansk and Donetsk regions. Food insecurity remains the same as in the year 2018, with 1.1 million people at risk. These impacts are further heightened by Ukraine’s extremely harsh winters, severe restrictions on humanitarian access and limited livelihood opportunities.

Ukraine Crisis Response Plan 2019
Staff from across the region gathered in Kyiv to learn more about IOM's procurement policies

Ukraine's capital Kyiv recently hosted a Regional Capacity Building Workshop on Procurement, where 43 staff from across the region came together to focus on IOM's procurement policy and procedures.

Ukraine hosts one of IOM's largest logistical and procurement operations in the region, and it was thus a highly suitable venue for the workshop. 

Shattered Lives, Unbroken Spirits

Kyiv — This year the conflict in eastern Ukraine, largely forgotten by the international media, will mark its fifth anniversary. IOM and other humanitarian agencies working in the country estimate that 3.5 million people in Ukraine still need assistance. The number has risen slightly in the past year, due to the impact of landmines and the mental and psychological scars of the drawn-out conflict.

An Iconic Moment

February 2015. In the midst of the cruel Ukrainian winter a family sits in a car in the southern city of Mariupol, shaking with fear and relief. Ten kilometres away, their home is smoke, dust and rubble. 

July 2018. “Our village was heavily shelled”, recalls Natalia. “We were hiding in our basement, when our house was destroyed. We had only two and a half minutes to escape while they were reloading. Thank God our car was not damaged. We drove, and shells were falling behind us”.
