Caritas Czech Republic and other Czech Caritas organisations have long been working in Ukraine. Previously, our assistance focused mainly on social services for children and the elderly, health care and education. Since 2014, we have been providing humanitarian aid to people affected by the conflict in eastern parts of the country. We also have long-term cooperation with Caritas Ukraine, which has an extensive network of local offices in the country.

Assistance to displaced people and ensuring the access to health services

In response to the Russian invasion of Ukraine in 2022, Caritas Czech Republic has significantly expanded its humanitarian activities in the country. Our assistance includes material aid delivery and provision of psychosocial care within the affected areas.

We also help those who have fled to safer parts of the country secure decent living conditions, provide direct financial support to displaced Ukrainians, and improve access to health care. We are also helping Ukrainian refugees in Moldova.

Serving Ukraine in a time of crisis

“We decided to leave our home because it was dreadful to stay there,” says Maria, a woman who fled Crimea as fighting intensified. “Only three of us came here – two children and I. We have moved to an unfamiliar city, unknown people, without our ordinary things.” Read more on caritas.org.
