Nearly 1.6 million internally displaced Ukrainians struggle to find safety, adequate housing and access to employment. Safety and security remain major concerns for nearly 800,000 people living near the Line of Contact.
Some families living closest to the conflict rarely seek safety in bomb shelters anymore. The normality of conflict is increasing people’s thresholds and thus the physical and mental dangers they face.
Hundreds of thousands of people are living under the perpetual threat of shelling, shooting, and landmines, and access to basics like food, water and electrical power has been dramatically curtailed, said Peter Maurer.
Nearly three years after the start of the conflict, the security situation in eastern Ukraine remains tense. About 3.1 million people need help, and across Ukraine people continue to experience the consequences of conflict.
