Child hunger



UNICEF is on the ground and constantly helping children in Ukraine. But escalating hostilities mean that the humanitarian needs of the youngest are growing rapidly. Some water and education infrastructure has been destroyed, and there are restrictions on electricity and gas supplies. Access to emergency medical care is becoming increasingly difficult. Families with children are fleeing their homes and poverty levels are rising. As the conflict escalates, we are increasing the scale of our assistance.

We will use the funds raised to provide children with safe shelters and psychosocial support, medical care, clean water and hygiene products. We are working with local partners to accurately assess the most urgent needs and provide effective assistance to children. Make a donation and help with us!

Olena Zelenska, Ukraine’s first lady, has published on social media pictures of children killed in the Russian invasion. So far, she wrote, 38 children have been killed.

“This number may now increase (…)! If the Russians say they don’t fight civilians, show them these photos! These are the faces of children who will never grow up,” wrote the Ukrainian president’s wife. president.

“They cruelly and cynically kill our children,” – wrote in social networks the first lady of Ukraine Olena Zelenskaya. For eleven days now, Ukrainians have been repelling attacks by the Russian military.

Since the invasion began, missiles have been falling on both military and civilian targets. More than 2,000 people have been killed so far. Among the casualties are children.

Zelenskaya on Sunday posted photos on Facebook of children killed by the Russian invasion. “At least 38 children have already been killed in Ukraine. And this number may now increase even more (…)! If the Russians say they are not at war with civilians, show them these photos! These are the faces of children who will never grow up,” she wrote.


The First Lady of Ukraine also spoke about the tragic fate of five children who died during the war. She began with 6-year-old Sofia, who was killed in a shootout while fleeing with her family from Novaya Kakhovka in the south of the country. She also mentioned Alisa from Okhtyrka in southern Ukraine, whose grandfather tried to defend himself with his own body, but both were killed. A similar fate befell Polina from Kiev. Zelenskaya also mentioned the severely wounded 14-year-old Arseniy, whom doctors were unable to reach due to constant shelling, and just one-and-a-half-year-old Kirill from Mariupol. The wounded child was taken to hospital by his parents, but doctors could no longer help him.

“How many more children must die before Russian troops stop shooting and allow humanitarian corridors to be established? How much more blood must be shed and how many more people must die of starvation?” – Zelenskaya wrote.

The Ukrainian first lady asked “all righteous media in the world” to cover “these horrifying facts”. She added that Russian mothers should see pictures of murdered Ukrainian children so that they realise what their sons are doing in Ukraine.


How can I help Ukrainian children?


Your donation to the Children’s Relief Fund today can help provide urgent humanitarian assistance to children in Ukraine and around the world who are growing up in the midst of armed conflict.


Who are the Ukrainian refugees?


Most incoming Ukrainian refugees are women and children .

Children and mothers are fleeing Ukraine in immense grief after their families were separated when Russian military operations forced thousands of families to leave their homes and seek safety.

We can see that the mothers are relieved that their children are safe and have found refuge, o yet they are afraid to do it alone. As husbands and fathers remain in Ukraine, it is the mothers who have their child’s life in their hands.

We are very concerned about reports of racial discrimination faced by children, families and students at the border leaving Ukraine. A basic principle of humanitarian aid is that everyone will receive assistance, regardless of nationality or skin colour.
