May 2022 – The humanitarian situation in Ukraine deteriorated significantly following the Russian military offensive beginning 24 February, which has resulted in over 5 million people displaced to neighbouring countries including Poland, Hungary, Romania, Moldova and Slovakia, and nearly 8 million people internally displaced. On March 1, 2022, humanitarian partners issued appeals for approximately USD 2 billion to support the humanitarian response inside Ukraine over the next three months as well as the humanitarian needs of Ukrainians seeking refuge in neighbouring countries. In light of the complexity of the crisis, it is anticipated that humanitarian needs will grow commensurately, which will require ongoing donor support to allow partners to scale up their humanitarian response in Ukraine and neighbouring countries. With GAC's support, the Adventist Development and Relief Agency is providing assistance to address growing humanitarian needs in Ukraine. This project focuses on the provision of protection and cash assistance for the most vulnerable internally displaced persons in Ukraine and refugees in Moldova and Romania. Project activities include: (1) providing multi-purpose cash assistance to cover basic needs; and (2) providing protection and psychosocial support services to refugees at the border entry points, for refugees in transit at shelters in border towns and the capitals and for refugees taking up asylum in the respective countries.

Expected results 

The expected outcome for this project include: (1) Increased access to life saving basic needs; and (2)protection for rights holders displaced in Ukraine or seeking refuge and/or transit in Romania and Moldova because of the Ukraine crisis. The expected ultimate outcome is lives saved, suffering alleviated and human dignity maintained in countries experiencing humanitarian crises or acute food insecurity.
