STORYLINE:

More than 80,000 refugees have fled the conflict in Ukraine in the last few days and have crossed the border into Moldova.

According to the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), most of the refugees are women with children, and older people, who are often the most vulnerable in situations of conflict and displacement.

Maria, 25, is a single mom from Odessa, Ukraine. She entered Moldova from the Palanca-Maiaki-Udobnoe Border Crossing Station in the Ștefan Vodă District of Moldova with her 18-month-old son in her arms. She left her family – parents, grandmother and 2 brothers – in Odessa, and decided to come to Moldova to save her son’s life.

As of 1 March, around 660,000 refugees had fled Ukraine to neighboring countries in the previous six days, primarily to Poland, Hungary, Moldova, Romania, and Slovakia, and other European countries.

With an estimated 265,000 pregnant women in Ukraine, some 80,000 of whom are expected to deliver over the coming three months, UNFPA is scaling up our life-saving services to ensure that all women and girls are protected from violence, and babies are being born safely with the highest level of care.

The organization is also distributing dignity kits with essential hygiene and sanitary items, including menstrual pads.

These items are often overlooked, but UNFPA says they are important to help women and girls maintain their dignity as their lives are disrupted by the conflict and their flight to safety.

The violence in Ukraine is taking a heavy toll on women and families, disrupting lives, straining health and coping mechanisms and leaving vulnerable people dependent on humanitarian assistance.
