About the mission
The conflict in Ukraine has seen a dramatic and rapid escalation since 24th February 2022 with massive multidimensional attacks from Russian troops throughout Ukraine, from the East, North, and Southern borders that affected a large part of the country including the capital, Kyiv. This attack has been immediately followed by massive displacements, and more than 4 500 000 Ukrainians have taken refuge in neighboring countries. About 6 500 000 are internally displaced, mostly in the Western part of the country. In the East, impacts of the conflict are felt and humanitarian operations support people remaining on the frontlines.
SI strategy is to support the population in transit, the IDPs where they are settling and the population on the frontline directly affected by the ongoing conflict through a multisectoral approach including WaSH, Shelter, NFI, Food Security, and Multi-Sectoral Cash activities.
Mission: size, bases, budget, number of expatriates and national staff:
The Coordination in Kyiv was the last base opened in the country around September-October 2022. Prior to that SI opened and developed activities in Lviv, Uman, Odesa, Mykholaiv, Dnipro, Donetsk, and Kharkiv. From November 2022 SI also opened activities in Kherson. The mission is also supervising and supporting projects in Moldova with a base in Chisinau working for Ukrainian refugees and host communities.
The budget projected was approximately 30 million for 2022-2023 (from the start to mid-2023). SI expects to support the Ukrainian population in both countries for an expected amount of 24M EUR.
The setup of the mission is the following:
- One coordination based in Kyiv
One operational base in Kharkiv
These two bases are focusing on humanitarian aid delivery to Eastern Oblasts (Dnipropetrovska, Kharkivska, Donetska, Luhanska, Zaporizka) and support to IDPs.
One operational base in Chisinau (Moldova) focusing on refugee response.
Key current donors include BHA, ECHO, UNICEF, UHF, and CDCS.
The mission is evolving and currently counts around 40 expatriates and 130 national employees.
