Imagine growing up in a war zone — instead of developing your identity and worrying about your schoolwork, you live in constant fear of losing your life, or your family.

As the conflict drags on in eastern Ukraine, the needs of people in affected areas are only becoming more dire. This week, while some are celebrating the country’s independence day, others are worried about the consequences of war.

It’s a bitter reminder of all that the country has been through in the past year, and since the start of the fighting.

“As Ukrainians around the world celebrate the nation’s independence day – August 24 – more and more people are suffering because of violence in the east,” says Stu Willcuts, Mercy Corps’ Country Director in Ukraine.

Ladylue Walker, 30, grows cassava to help support and feed her family — her husband, three children, mother and grandmother, plus her sister’s five children — in Liberia, the small country bordered by Guinea, Sierra Leone and Côte d’Ivoire on Africa’s western edge.

But making ends meet since the Ebola virus ravaged her community — and nation — hasn’t been easy.

Since December 2013, the worst outbreak of the disease in history has sickened more than 28,000 people, killed thousands more, and wreaked havoc on economies across West Africa.

UPDATE August 13: In collaboration with local authorities, our team on the ground conducted an assessment in the Lay Myatnar Township of damage from the recent flooding. They determined that more than 5,000 families in the area have been affected, and 3,500 acres of rice fields have been destroyed.

In response to urgent need, our team is preparing to distribute emergency relief kits to affected families in the area. We will also provide rice seeds to local farmers to help them in their replanting efforts.
