Ukraine

DRC has been in Ukraine since 2014 and has expanded operations significantly since 24 February 2022 to deliver lifesaving assistance and emergency responses to people affected by the war. Furthermore, DRC is one of the key partners to national authorities to address needs for risk education, demining, and removal of explosive remnants of war.

Why we are there

Since 24 February 2022, a military offensive launched by the Russian Federation in Ukraine has driven millions of people from their homes in search of safety, protection, and humanitarian assistance within Ukraine, in neighbouring countries, and beyond in wider Europe.

The conflict in Ukraine has caused the world’s fastest-growing displacement crisis since World War II and will require continued urgent responses to immediate humanitarian needs as well as investment in recovery and reconstruction. 

What we do

DRC’s coordination structure around the Ukraine crisis response is adjusted and reinforced to provide for sufficient attention to all elements of engagement. This includes a continued, adapted response in Ukraine, engagement in neighbouring countries, wider Europe, and in Denmark.

DRC as such applies a holistic programmatic approach in its Ukraine crisis response.

Currently, continuing to contribute to the emergency responses, DRC is developing strategies to respond to needs in Ukraine in the longer term, with activities in four out of five DRC core sectors:
