International humanitarian organizations continue to support the people of Ukraine in the second year of russia’s large-scale armed aggression. They assisted nearly 7.3 million Ukrainians in the first half of 2023 alone.

The United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) reports.

For example, OCHA estimates that from January to June this year, 2.5 million people received targeted cash assistance from international humanitarian partners, including nearly 20,000 people affected by the destruction of the Kakhovka hydropower plant.

Health services were provided to 5 million people. About 3.3 million Ukrainians were provided with shelter or necessities.

In the face of shortages, 3 million people received access to clean water and hygiene supplies. Another 3.7 million people received food parcels.

In addition, nearly 1 million displaced children, who had been denied the opportunity to receive an education in their place of residence, received the support they needed to continue their education.

Several others were provided with information services on legal aid, mine safety, and other advice.

For its part, the Ministry of Reintegration calls on international humanitarian organizations to take into account the challenges associated with the de-occupation of the territories.

In particular, to begin the formation of personnel reserves that will be ready to go to the liberated territory to carry out humanitarian work.
