Providing Emergency Relief to Frontline Internally Displaced Ukrainians

Un projet de Prénom Nom

Support this project


According to the most recent report of the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, there are currently 14,6 million people in need (⅓ of the total population) in Ukraine. Among them, 6,3 million people are internally displaced, including more than two million displaced children.

Ukraine has a total of 7,200 shelters with an average capacity of 70 people per shelter – enough to shelter only some 10% of the total population in need. Clearly, this is simply not enough.

In addition, more than ⅓ of internally displaced people (IDPs) are in Eastern Ukraine, sometimes in areas less than 20 km away from the front line. Those areas face daily shelling by rockets and heavy long-range artillery with air raid siren running day and night. Many have lost all means of livelihood and depend completely on the distribution of humanitarian aid and food.

Goals & Activities


  • Evacuate civilians from the daily shelling in Donetsk Region;
  • Provide IDPs with temporary/long-term accommodations in Dnipro (200 km from the front line);
  • Provide ID children with educational and play space (public kindergartens and school do not work because of martial law).


  • Undertake and increase the number of weekly evacuation missions;
  • Renovate and expand one of the largest existing shelters to increase its operational capacity;
  • Build a second children’s centre to meet the high demand.

Local Implementation Partner

Myriad Canada is working with Children New Generation (CNG) on this project, a non-profit organization working on improving the future of children from low-income families and now providing emergency relief since the war began in Ukraine.

Since March 2022, CNG has:

  • evacuated over 4,030 individuals from high-risk areas in the Kharkiv, Luhansk, Donetsk, and Kherson regions;
  • offered both temporary and permanent shelter to around 2,000 people;
  • distributed more than 60,000 food kits, both in Dnipro and in evacuation zones.
