Bravery, resilience and solidarity: Ukraine 2 years after the invasion


For the Ukrainian people displaced or still living in the country, ACT Alliance has truly been hope in action. Tirelessly responding to the ever-changing needs of those affected by what has been the largest refugee crisis in Europe since the Second World War, for the past two years our members have been a model of holistic and coordinated approach. Our humanitarian aid workers have been operating in a very dangerous and volatile setting, putting their lives at risk every single day.  Regrettably, two HEKS staff recently  lost their lives during a drone attack, sending shock waves across the whole community.Incredible bravery, resilience, and solidarity has marked the Ukraine response all along, following the illegal full-scale Russian invasion in 2022.Since the beginning of the conflict our response has focused on providing lifesaving support to the communities who faced this tragedy, in 2023, ACT Alliance launched a revised Ukraine appeal (UKR221), with Christian Aid joining as requesting member.Our Total ACT reponse for Ukraine is constantly changing to meet the need for psychological, spiritual and practical support, strengthening the Survivor and Community Led Response approach – which relies on the partnership with communities and local organisations to assess the situation on the ground and be in the driving seat of the response. We have prepared a gallery on our Media bank where you can find images, testimonies and interviews that picture the past two years of our work.   Thank you for your unwavering support which is vital to our efforts to help all those affected by the ongoing conflict in Ukraine.Your help matters.UKR 221 appeal informationShould you need assistance please, Communications, Humanitarian Officer Europe
