Three months of war in Ukraine.
The lives of millions of people have been shaken since war broke out on 24 February 2022. Women and children who fled the fighting have been separated from their husbands, sons and fathers. Many people who have had to leave their homes are heavily dependent on aid.
The Order of Malta has been serving the people of Ukraine for almost 30 years. The Order of Malta Aid Service in Ukraine and surrounding countries were among the first to respond to this disaster and to initiate relief efforts. Malteser International has supported them and we will continue to do so as long as needed. Three months after the outbreak of the war, the Order of Malta family continues to support those affected – in Ukraine, neighbouring countries and worldwide.
Since 24 February 2022, we have sent over 3,700 tonnes of relief supplies from Germany to Ukraine and the surrounding countries.
In Ukraine so far:
-Over 235,000 people have been provided with meals.
-Over 1000 psychosocial counselling sessions have been provided.
-Almost 50 cities in Ukraine have received relief supplies.
-Over 10,000 first aid trainings have been organized.
And we are still going! Together we will continue to support people in need in Ukraine.
