With humanitarian funds from the European Union (EU), the International Organization for Migration (IOM) can help more than 700,000 Ukrainians this winter, which is expected to be “the worst season yet for the country.”

Anh Nguyen, in charge of IOM’s mission in Ukraine, says that “displaced and war-affected people will face new and growing problems as the fighting continues and winter sets in across Ukraine.”

Expanding our help

IOM helps people prepare for winter by fixing up damaged homes, sending out high-thermal blankets, bedding kits, mattresses, and hygiene supplies, and fixing up centers for people who have been forced to leave their homes.

People are also getting solid fuel and financial help to help them keep their standard of living up during the harsh winter.

IOM will also use EU help to store essential supplies, make sure that people in Ukraine affected by the fighting can still be reached, and help its partners meet urgent needs on the ground.

Mr. Nguyen said, “Our top aim is to offer warm, safe, and dignified circumstances to help people get through the coming months.”

The “urgent needs”

Crews on wheels will fix leaky roofs, replace broken windows, add more showers, and improve the insulation at 375 communal sites and social organizations.

IOM will improve 5,800 homes and give people emergency shelter kits so they can make the improvements themselves.

The UN agency will also send building materials and generators to towns in parts of Ukraine that the government just took back.

Claudia Amaral, who is in charge of EU humanitarian aid in Ukraine, says, “Attacks continue to leave millions of people without reliable access to electricity, heating, and water, and our humanitarian partners like IOM continue to work to meet the most immediate needs.”

Needy 18 million

The UN Office for Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) says that 18 million Ukrainians, or about 40% of the country’s population, need humanitarian help.

Also, ongoing attacks on Ukraine’s critical infrastructure have made the war’s terrible effects on those most directly affected even worse.

According to the most recent IOM survey, Ukrainians want to stay put for the winter despite several attacks on the nation’s heating and electrical systems.

Only 7% of respondents from the country stated they seriously contemplated leaving.

In the meantime, people are finding it harder and harder to survive independently because 43 percent of Ukrainian households have spent all of their money.
