NRC started its activities in Ukraine in late 2014, striving to help people that have been displaced by the conflict that has affected over 5 million people. NRC supports internally displaced Ukrainians in conflict-affected communities in government-controlled areas of the Luhansk and Donetsk regions, especially along the contact line. NRC’s support addresses basic needs, but as displacement becomes protracted, NRC began to contribute to durable solutions. NRC’s activities in the country are transitioning from emergency relief to early recovery. NRC works to improve the delivery of services to conflict affected people and to increase local ownership of the humanitarian response.
As part of its early recovery and transitional work, NRC established a consortium with Medicos del Mundo (MDM) and a partnership with the Free Legal Aid Centres (FLACs), and Charity Fund Stabilization Support Services (SSS). In collaboration with WHO, NRC, MDM, FLACs, and SSS will address critical gaps in the delivery of assistance to Conflict Affected Populations while building the government’s capacity deliver services to citizens of government-controlled areas of eastern Ukraine. With funding from the Ukraine Humanitarian Fund, NRC, MDM, WHO, FLACs, and SSS will implement the project “Supporting the sustainable response of essential health, wash and legal services in Stanitsa Luhanska,” to improve health services and rehabilitate WASH infrastructure in health care facilities (HCFs), increase residents of Government Controlled Areas and non-Government Controlled Areas access to critical information, improve hygiene and sanitation practices to prevent the spread of infectious disease, and strengthen the provision of critical social, administrative, and legal services in hard-to-reach areas, isolated settlements, and Entry and Exit Check Points.
