February 24, 2022, marked the beginning of the conflict in Ukraine. The humanitarian needs of Ukrainians forced to flee the country, those internally displaced, and stranded third-country nationals are immense. More than a year into the conflict, military operations persist, most acutely in eastern and southern Ukraine, and critical civilian infrastructure continues to be targeted across the country, impacting the safety and security of the population and availability of public services.

Efforts to mobilize new donors and resources to fund IOM’s emergency response in Ukraine, is a priority of USA for IOM. The response focuses on providing shelter, healthcare, cash assistance, and immediate basic needs for conflict affected populations. These include internally displaced persons, host communities, and stranded third country nationals. 

Response efforts also focus on provision of mental health and psychosocial support (MHPSS) and multipurpose cash assistance in Ukraine and neighboring countries. As the conflict timeline extends, IOM continues to provide life-saving assistance and protection support, while also scaling up efforts to address longer-term socioeconomic impacts in both Ukraine and neighboring countries.

More than 463,000 people affected by the Ukraine conflict have received multisectoral support through USA for IOM support to IOM’s emergency response.
