Security conditions in Ukraine’s east and south continue to worsen, resulting in 330,000 people newly displaced inside the country in the last month. The estimated number of internally displaced people has risen to 6.9 million, and more than 7 million refugees are recorded in European countries. 

UNFPA continues to support survivors of gender-based violence (GBV) in Ukraine and neighbouring countries. Three Survivor Relief Centres located in Zaporizhzhia, Lviv and Dnipro have helped around 1,200 internally displaced people and GBV survivors in the last two months.

On International Youth Day (12 August), UNFPA released a video to illustrate the vital role young people play in the emergency response and recovery efforts in Ukraine. UNFPA supported “Energy of your future” youth camps that help teenagers cope with trauma and plan for the future. In Moldova, UNFPA supported “Know the Country that Hosts You Tours” with the National Youth Council and facilitated peer-to-peer learning on sexual and reproductive health (SRH) and GBV.

UNFPA continues to partner with the Center for Reproductive Rights (CRR) and the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) to support the institutional and operational needs of national civil society organizations and service providers in Hungary, Poland, Romania and Slovakia that are providing SRH and GBV assistance and information to hundreds of refugees from Ukraine.
