Context

On February 24, the Russian president announced a special military operation to demilitarize Ukraine. Minutes later, missiles/air raids hit all of Ukraine, including Kiev, shortly followed by a massive ground invasion from several directions, in a major escalation of the 2014 conflict and resulting in the siege of several major strategic Ukrainian cities such as Chernihiv, Kharkiv, Kherson, Kyiv, Mariupol, and Sumy. The Ukrainian president has since enacted martial law resulting in the general mobilization and management of the country by the military.

While the eastern part of the country was attacked from the beginning of the invasion with an assault on the main cities of the country, the Russian troops quickly attacked the capital, Kiev, causing the displacement of the diplomatic bodies of the United Nations and the majority of humanitarian actors to the west, particularly to Lviv, which has become a real humanitarian hub. The populations forced to flee for safety are seeking to reach the west of the country, which is, so far, still relatively unaffected by attacks. The Lviv region is home to a large number of displaced persons and is the main transit point for people seeking to reach Poland or other European border countries. On the 18th of April, OCHA revealed that over 4.9 million people have crossed international borders to seek refuge mainly in Poland.

According to IOM on the 21st of April, the total number of internally displaced since the beginning of the war is over 7.7 million, 17 per cent of the country’s population and women represent at least 60 per cent of those displaced.

According to the humanitarian community, all the people living in Ukraine have been directly or indirectly affected by the conflict. Emergency humanitarian needs are varied and cut across all sectors.

The most pressing needs identified include:

Presentation of the mission

TGH has been present in Ukraine since 2015. Established in Kramatorsk (East), TGH’s interventions were targeting the most vulnerable populations along the contact line employing traditional and innovative modalities as follows:

In 2020, TGH completed its intervention with an emergency Covid-19 response funded by UNICEF supporting healthcare, educational and social institutions and households of Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts (GCA) along the contact line with electronic vouchers for essential hygiene.

Following February 24th, TGH mobilized its teams on the ground and at headquarters to maintain its existing activities and develop an emergency response to meet the most immediate needs of the affected populations. To this end, TGH has quickly started various assistance programs to cover the basic needs and respond to the psychological distress of the affected households and individuals. To date, TGH is implementing 6 different projects, while others are under discussion. To implement these activities in the most affected areas of Ukraine, TGH has developed and reinforced the collaboration with local partners that are essential and take a crucial place in the global response.

Initially operational in Ukraine from Kramatorsk, the team has been relocated to Lviv where the main TGH office recently opened and from where the activities are remotely managed. Interventions have also begun in Vinnytsia Oblast, where Protection Teams and Support Staff are in place. Given the enormous needs all around Ukraine and the different grants awarded, TGH is planning to open in the coming weeks sub-offices in two other main cities of Ukraine (Cherkasy and Dnipro) in order to be closer to the beneficiaries and ensure a proper implementation and follow up.

TGH is a member of the following Clusters and Working groups: Protection, Child Protection Sub-Cluster, Legal Aid Working Group, Age and Disability Working Group (ADWG), Mental Health and Psychosocial Support Working Group (MHPSS WG), Food Security and Livelihoods Cluster (FSLC), Agriculture Working Group, Cash-based transfers Working Group (CBTWG) and WASH Cluster. TGH is leading on the General Protection Case Management Task Force, and also attending the Advocacy Working Group and the HLP Taskforce.
