Since Russia invaded Ukraine in February 2022, one-third of Ukrainians have been forcibly displaced from their homes, with more than 7 million across border countries and millions internally displaced. HIAS opened its office in Ukraine in the early stages of the conflict and with local partners provides mental health support services and legal aid, and also distributes cash, food assistance, and hygiene kits. HIAS continues to work closely with Right to Protection (R2P), an independent Ukrainian NGO that HIAS helped found, providing humanitarian aid.
