Ukraine will receive $5.6 billion in aid from the UN in 2023

UNITED NATIONS: Humanitarian aid is needed for the millions of refugees fleeing the war-torn Ukraine, the United Nations said Wednesday.

Nearly a year after Moscow launched its full-scale invasion of Ukraine, the UN estimated that 21.8 million Ukrainians were now in need of humanitarian assistance.

In a statement, UN humanitarian chief Martin Griffiths said the war continues to kill, destroy, and displace people on a staggering scale every day.

Including those near the front lines, the hardest-to-reach communities must be reached.

International support is still needed to alleviate the suffering of the Ukrainian people.

There are so many needs that aid organizations cannot reach everyone, but the UN says the $5.6 billion it has requested in this year’s budget will allow it to reach the 15.3 million people in greatest need.

According to the report, $1.7 billion of that amount is needed for aid to the more than four million Ukrainian refugees housed throughout eastern Europe.

The UN estimates that women and children make up approximately 86 percent of the refugee population.

According to UN refugee chief Filippo Grandi, Europe has shown it is capable of taking bold, collective action to help refugees.

The host community’s hospitality, however, should not be taken for granted, he said.

Refugees must be supported and supported until they are able to return home in safety and dignity.

Over 16 million people have received aid and protection services in Ukraine since the war began in 2014, including in areas that the Ukrainian government has little control over.

Humanitarian grievances have been further aggravated by the war in Ukraine, where livelihoods have been profoundly affected and the market has been disrupted, particularly in the south and east, according to the appeal.

As a result of soaring unemployment, skyrocketing inflation, and inadequate social assistance, most Ukrainians have reportedly cut back on food consumption and spent savings.

Although food and other necessities are still widely available in Ukraine’s controlled areas, it cautions that without cash, vouchers, or livelihood assistance, these items are difficult to afford.

This highlights the systematic destruction of civilian infrastructure throughout the war, which makes them much harder to obtain in areas subject to constant bombardment.
