Girls and women are often the most impacted in a crisis. Children will bear the invisible wounds of conflict, even after the fighting has stopped. The war in Ukraine will take a heavy toll on the mental health of children and young people.

The war is exacerbating harmful gender stereotypes, increasing the care burden on women and girls, and has resulted in skyrocketing gender-based violence.

Plan International is working with authorities and organisations in Poland, Romania and Moldova to support girls, boys, young people and their families. 

We’re delivering relief assistance, child protection, mental health and psychosocial support, cash and voucher, education and advocacy programmes.  

With your help, we can scale up urgent relief operations to support more children and their families.
