Escaping the Conflict

Viktoriia fled to Romania to escape the conflict with her two children, Leva, 2, and Nikita, 14, leaving her home and livelihood behind. Viktoriia received our cash vouchers which give families the independence and choice in managing their own household needs.  

“Thank you very much for everything. When I was told that today you were going to come and give these vouchers I cried because those we don’t know are helping us," says Viktoriia.  

Thanks to your support, more families like Viktoriia’s can receive cash and voucher assistance to help them buy essentials like food, clothing and menstrual health products.   

Backpacks Donated To Support Child Refugees
Over 500 child refugees now have backpacks like this thanks to your donations. The backpacks come complete with educational items and hygiene kits.


Your donations helped us to quickly mobilise our experts and set up much-needed support across Romania, Moldova and Poland. Together we have: 

  • Set up mobile child protection units to provide psychological support to children arriving from Ukraine. 
  • Trained teachers in mental health and psychosocial support in Poland and Moldova.  
  • Distributed educational materials like tablets to help children keep learning even when they are away from school.  
  • Provided psychological support to children and their caregivers as they come to terms with their experiences.
  • Helped to provide safe schools and shelters where children can continue their education.
