We have been deeply shocked and saddened at the situation that is unfolding in Ukraine. We know the importance of water, sanitation and hygiene provision in humanitarian situations and how critical it is to reduce health risks and to provide disaster-affected populations with dignity and protection.
Initial assessments have shown that the escalation of violence in Ukraine will affect WASH infrastructures and systems. This will result in an increasing number of people running out of water and adequate provisions. Support in hygiene promotion and emergency sanitation services will become essential, as well as targeted water supply repairs. Solid waste management will also be needed.
Please help us to support the people of Ukraine by donating to our emergency response appeal.
All donations no matter how large or small will help our partners on the ground to identify the most urgent and effective WASH-focused response.
£50 could provide essential hygiene supplies (toothbrush, toothpaste, soap bars, shampoo, washing powder, bleaching and disinfection powder, hygiene pads and toilet paper) for a displaced family of four for three months.
