IOCC Relief Reaches Children Displaced
by Ukraine Conflict

International Orthodox Christian Charities (IOCC) is responding to the urgent needs of the Ukraine conflict's most vulnerable victims with emergency food assistance for 900 children under age three living in areas directly affected by the violence in Eastern Ukraine.
Nearly two years of armed conflict has driven 1.5 million Ukrainian people from their homes. UNICEF estimates that nearly 180,000 of those displaced are children. Among the most severely impacted are infants and toddlers, as well as mothers with special needs children. As Ukraine's brief autumn turns into winter, the living conditions these children face will only worsen. Click on the photo to learn more.
