Funding Overview and Partnerships

UNICEF has received a total of US$342.6 million for the response inside Ukraine out of the US$624.2 million total funding requirement in its revised 2022 Ukraine and Refugee Outflow Humanitarian Action for Children (HAC) appeal (March–August 2022) to provide emergency assistance to 1.7 million war-affected children and their families within Ukraine. Generous contributions have come from many donors including the Governments of Austria, Czech Republic, Denmark, Iceland, Italy, Ireland, Japan, the Republic of Korea, Liechtenstein, Norway, Poland, Sweden, Switzerland, the United States of America, USAID Bureau for Humanitarian Assistance (BHA), the European Commission (EC), and the United Nations Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF).

Ongoing fundraising campaigns by UNICEF National Committees and countries offices have generated timely and flexible support from the private sector, including from corporate partners, foundations, philanthropy partners and individual donors, with US$326.6 already received for the entire response. Private sector support has been unprecedented with donations received from over 500 businesses, 151 philanthropy partners, 83 foundations, and a large base of individual donors across over 24 countries. Some prominent private sector donors and partners who have made significant contributions include Epic Games, Akelius Foundation, Aeon, Apple, Google, LEGO Foundation, ING, HSBC, Binance Blockchain Charity Foundation, Capgemini and Ikea.

UNICEF continues to work with the Government of Ukraine, United Nations agencies, civil society organizations/ NGOs and other humanitarian partners. Close consultations are also being held with Presidential advisors, key ministries (Foreign Affairs; Social Policy; Education; Youth; and Health), mayors in several cities (including through 35 Child and Youth Friendly Cities) and the Ombudspersons Office. Through its long-standing presence in Ukraine, UNICEF has established partnerships in key hromadas (municipalities) and is continuing to expand these in all oblasts (regions). Overall, more than 80 partners are engaged in UNICEF’s response, which despite the challenging conditions, has been able to ensure humanitarian support in some of the most war-affected and hard-to-access locations.
