CHILDREN

No one loses as much to war as children. In Ukraine, the children sacrifice their education, passions and friendships to shifting front lines. They suffer psychological scars. Thousands of them have lost their fathers and brothers during the current turmoil, their families have been misplaced and forced to flee, leaving grandparents and friends behind; their schools and kindergartens have been destroyed. We deliver life-saving health and medical supplies as well as humanitarian aid to reach the stranded children and their families, and provide ambulances to help with their evacuation; we also help the displaced children to adjust to their new living conditions.

About one thousand babies are born in Ukraine daily, many in terrible conditions. Stress and anxiety are resulting in many more premature births. We provide neonatal equipment and medication, which are essential to care for babies born in a time of conflict and help save their lives. 

Before the invasion, Ukraine had about 91,000 children in institutional orphanages, more than half with disabilities; that number has climbed since the war began as well as the number of children orphaned or separated from their parents. We provide assistance to orphanages, schools or directly to victims of war in war-torn areas of Ukraine by supplying them with humanitarian and medical aid and helping them to escape the danger zone. 

We run Sponsor a Ukrainian child programme and put supporters in touch with individual families. Our supporters can sponsor a child and become Guardian angels for children in need. If you’d like to be involved please contact us at info@british-ukrainianaid.org
