Slepa mapa_Ukrajina 2015 orezCaritas Czech Republic has been working in Ukraine for a long time. Like in the Czech Republic, our assistance focuses mainly on social services for children and the elderly, health care and education. We also have a long-term cooperation with Caritas Ukraine, which has an extensive network of local offices in the country.

Since 2014, our activities have changed and Caritas has also started to provide humanitarian aid to people affected by the conflict in the East of the country. In response to the invasion of Ukraine by Russian troops, Caritas has significantly expanded its humanitarian activities in the country to help people affected by the war.

Our activities in the country include delivering material aid and ensuring access to health and psychosocial care in affected areas, as well as supporting internally displaced people. We are also helping people fleeing the war in Moldova.

Many of them are living in completely unsatisfactory conditions. Caritas Czech Republic is launching a project to improve sanitary facilities in accommodation centres and to ensure the construction of modular units. These will provide accommodation for the most vulnerable groups of displaced people.
