Millions of people have fled their homes because of the war and corresponding violence in Ukraine. Others, because of poverty or age, have no choice but to remain in life-threatening situations. The needs are enormous and ZOA immediately has sent its Disaster Response Team to provide life-saving assistance.

In Zakarpattia ZOA started a cash distribution programme for thousands of internally displaced people. At this moment ZOA is expanding its programme in Chernihiv district (north of Kiev) looking into shelter and cash as main sectors.
