The war in Ukraine has triggered one of the largest human displacement crises in the world, with mass displacement inside Ukraine and a large influx of refugees to Ukraine’s neighboring countries and beyond. Inside Ukraine, over 5,4 million people remain internally displaced by the war. In addition, as of June 2023, over 5,9 million refugees from Ukraine have been recorded across Europe. Humanitarian needs are particularly acute among long-term IDPs and those with pre-existing vulnerabilities. In addition to the danger from shelling and armed violence, the lack of basic services, the immense protections risks (especially for single-caregiver-households), missing (re-)integration services and livelihoods as well as the lack of accommodation and income lead to increasing vulnerability, especially in terms of exploitation, Gender-Based Violence and family separation.
