Urge Humanitarian Assistance in Ukraine & Protection for Ukrainian Displaced Persons
Millions of people have been forcibly displaced from Ukraine. The global community must rally support for the protection and safety of displaced populations both within and outside of Ukraine.
Even before the recent incursion in February 2022, more than 1.5 million Ukrainians had been internally displaced in Ukraine following the annexation of Crimea in 2014. What’s more, World Relief has helped resettle more than 13,000 refugees from Ukraine over the past 18 years.
In the last decade alone, World Relief has resettled 7,300 Ukrainians — that’s nearly 40 percent of all Ukrainian refugees resettled to the U.S. We are ready to support the resettlement of Ukrainian refugees to the United States, however, the primary response to the crisis in Ukraine is meeting the immediate needs of those displaced and those affected by conflict who remain in Ukraine. The United States must lead a global response in supporting the Ukrainian people.
