“We, along with our humanitarian partners, have today released a revised Humanitarian Flash Appeal. The financial requirements have increased from 2.25 billion dollars to $4.3 billion dollars. More than a quarter of Ukraine’s population, that’s 17.7 million men, women and children, will need humanitarian assistance in the months ahead, that’s an increase of about two million compared to our estimates in April. The appeal has been extended until December due to the worsening situation. With 2.38 billion dollars already received toward the Flash Appeal, donor support to this emergency has been unprecedented.”

“Our humanitarian colleagues warn that during the forthcoming winter, the situation can deteriorate as more people will be displaced from areas with limited access to gas, fuel or electricity. Supporting them is a priority. During the first five months of the war, at least 2.3 million Ukrainians received cash assistance. We are also planning to scale that up to a target of 6.3 million vulnerable people by the end of the year.”
