Ukraine: Situation report No. 37 as of 24 April 2015
● Protection cluster partners are receiving reports of people being harmed in incidents related to landmines and unexploded ordnances (UXOs). Cluster partners are gathering data on the number of casualties.
● Conflict-affected people have difficulty accessing health care services and markets due to burdensome bureaucratic travel requirements.
● The Ministry of Social Policy (MoSP) extended the validity of registration certificates enabling IDPs to access social services and benefits. However, partners indicate that the authorities on the ground need clear instructions from Kyiv as in some cases they misinterpret the new directive.
● Funding for humanitarian operations remains low: only 21 percent of the US$316 required for Humanitarian Response Plan (HRP) 2015 is funded or pledged.
