Providing assistance to conflict-affected population fleeing the conflict from Ukraine
On 24 February 2022, conflict broke out in Ukraine when Russian forces launched a large-scale invasion following months of steadily increasing tensions. As a resuit, immediately before and during the crisis, a huge increase of outflows of people has been seen from Ukraine. With reports of Ukrainian men aged 18- 60 years being subject to conscription, the majority of evacuees are women and children, as well as persons with disabilities and older persons. The overall scale and unpredictability ofthe situation requires immediate humanitarian assistance for the most vulnerable displaced and conflict-affected communities.
ln Romania, IOM aims to ensure immediate and medium-term support to individuals fleeing the conflict in Ukraine, both Ukrainian nationals and third-country nationals (TCNs). ln particular, IOM aims to provide affected populations with relief items provision of NFls and materials needed for the reception centres, cash assistance, protection and counselling, Mental Health and Psychosocial Support (MHPSS), medicines when needed, educational and socio-cultural activities etc. ln implementing the activities IOM will work closely with NGOs and local authorities.
The activities implemented under this project shall be funded by Norway - Ministry of Foreign Affairs Headquarters - IOM Flash Appeal for Ukraine and Neighbouring Countries 2022.
