Urge Humanitarian Assistance in Ukraine & Protection for Ukrainian Displaced Persons

Since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine two years ago almost four million people in Ukraine have been internally displaced, and over six million Ukrainians have fled to other countries for safety. Additionally, 14.6 million people are in need of humanitarian assistance.  The global community must continue to rally support for the protection and safety of displaced populations both within and outside of Ukraine.

Before the incursion in February 2022, more than 1.5 million Ukrainians had already been internally displaced in Ukraine following the annexation of Crimea in 2014. In the decade preceding the most recent invasion, World Relief had resettled 7,300 Ukrainians —nearly 40 percent of all Ukrainian refugees resettled to the U.S. during that period.

Since the invasion two years ago, World Relief has partnered with local churches and other community partners to provide support for many additional Ukrainians – for those who have been able to reach the United States, for those in neighboring countries and for those still within Ukraine. We urge the U.S. government to lead a global response in supporting the Ukrainian people.
