As the war in Ukraine continues, the U.N. estimates more than 2 million people have fled the country, the biggest exodus of refugees in Europe since the end of World War II.

Ukrainians have fled to neighboring countries and even more are displaced within the country as fighting intensifies.

The global Red Cross has been on the ground delivering emergency aid to families including food, fuel, medical supplies and support for housing.

In just the past week, the global Red Cross teams in Ukraine have provided first aid training to more than 12,000, distributed more than 90,000 food and hygiene parcels and 32 tons of food, blankets, medicine, medical supplies and household items. Red Cross and Red Crescent teams in neighboring countries have distributed water, food, clothing, and more —as well as mental and emotional support.
