Ukraine emergency | World Food Programme

After receiving an official request for assistance from the Government of Ukraine, the World Food Programme (WFP) is launching an emergency operation to provide food assistance for people fleeing the conflict both within the country and in neighbouring ones.

WFP is scaling up to reach 6 million people in next 3 months through cash-based transfers as well as in-kind food distributions. WFP is also preparing to provide assistance to displaced Ukrainians in refugee hosting countries. Over 5 million Ukrainians have already fled the country and sought refuge in neighbouring countries since the beginning of the conflict. At the same time, more than 7.7 million people have been internally displaced.

Although the conflict is in Ukraine, its impact on food security will be global. The Black Sea basin is one of the world’s most important areas for grain and agricultural production.  The consequences of the conflict will increase pressure on resources and access to food beyond Ukraine’s borders.

To reach people affected by conflict in Ukraine and in neighbouring countries, WFP urgently needs your support.
