The Swiss Red Cross response for those affected by the conflict
In February 2022, the armed conflict between Russia and Ukraine escalated. Millions of people in Ukraine have had to endure the terrible consequences ever since. Many of them have been affected by the conflict since 2014. The violence and destruction are forcing people from their homes. More than 13 million – roughly a third of the population – have either been displaced within the country or have escaped to safety across the border. The dramatic situation in Ukraine and the huge number of refugees have required immediate humanitarian assistance. The situation in Ukraine after more than 1 ½ year of war remains difficult and fragile. As a member of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement, the Swiss Red Cross made and still makes an essential contribution to the coordinated response for the people affected by the conflict.
In this presentation, you will learn how the humanitarian aid of the Swiss Red Cross is organized and what assistance is being provided since the escalation of the armed conflict in 2022.
