Ukraine crisis:

Protect girls from Ukraine

The situation in Ukraine is leaving deep psychological scars on refugee children — and girls are uniquely vulnerable in times of crisis.

Plan International is responding now to support Ukrainian children and families in Poland, Moldova and Romania. From our 85+ years of experience, we know that one thing helps refugee children recover from trauma more than almost anything else: going back to school.

Here are some examples of what your gift to Plan can do:

  • $28 can provide a backpack filled with school supplies so that a refugee student can go back to school.
  • $55 can provide a set of teaching and learning materials for educators working with refugee students.
  • $110 can provide a tablet for refugee students to learn online while in shelters and temporary learning spaces.

“A 3-year-old boy heard the sound of a drill … and he was completely hysterical,” one Plan-supported psychologist says. “He had an experience with a bomb that exploded in front of him when he was on his way home from kindergarten in Ukraine. He immediately started screaming and looking for his mother.”

Refugee children fleeing Ukraine sit on wooden crate trying to keep warm.

Too many children have been torn from their families and seen unthinkable pain and violence. But your gifts can help them heal.

“Going to school has significant emotional and psychological benefits,” Plan Education in Emergencies Specialist Emilia Sorrentino says. “Girls who are in school are also less likely to be exposed to dangers such as sexual exploitation, trafficking and domestic labor.”
