Finding safety with friends
Where do you go when you’re fleeing violence? Hundreds of thousands of people are making their way across borders and to the safety of family and friend’s homes.
Olga and her two young children fled to the the border near Romania where they became separated from her father and brother. Olga’s is hoping to reach her friend in Romania.
“Two days ago, they started shooting, and last night it was very dangerous,” says Olga. “Now I don’t know what to do next. I have a sister in Germany and maybe next week we will go to her.”
Olga hopes she can return to Ukraine and be reunited with the rest of her family when it is safe.
The situation for children is dire. Children on the move are at risk of being seperated from their families, exploited and abused. UNICEF is doing everything it possibly can to respond to the urgent needs of children inside Ukraine and in neighbouring countries.
Thanks to our donors, we are delivering life-saving water, medical supplies, winter clothes and education kits to keep children and families going. If you’re able to, please make a gift for the children of Ukraine today.
