Press Releases

International aid organisation World Vision yesterday delivered much-needed food and medical supplies to a hospital in Ukraine, as the nation struggles to survive the current conflict. 

World Vision has today warned of the detrimental psychological impact the ongoing crisis in Ukraine will have on children and families. The child-focused NGO is scaling up its operation in response to refugees entering Romania from Ukraine and plans to provide psychological first aid for children who have been traumatised by this conflict, as well as basic relief supplies for refugees.

As the Ukraine crisis deepens, World Vision's concern is the risk posed to the most vulnerable – children. To this end, we are preparing contingency plans that will be activated should the situation deteriorate further and supporting our office in Romania to be ready to respond, should children and their families be forcibly displaced from Ukraine and need emergency assistance.
