1- Since the beginning of the war, HI has set up a two-country program covering Ukraine and Moldova. Aligning itself with the priorities of the Ukraine Flash Appeal and Regional Refugee Response Plan, HI pillars of interventions are the following:
• Health: HI aims to improve access to quality physical rehabilitation and mental health and psychosocial services (MHPSS) for conflict-affected vulnerable population.
• Protection: Given the scale of humanitarian and protection needs, HI intervenes at various levels to ensure that vulnerable conflict-affected populations have access to multi-sectoral services tailored to their needs. In addition, HI aims to foster a disability-inclusive humanitarian response.
• Armed Violence Reduction: Recent and ongoing attacks dangerously exacerbated Explosive Ordnance (EO) contamination in Ukraine. In light of this, HI is conducting a multi-pronged approach to EO Risk Education and Conflict Preparedness and Protection (CPP), adaptable to the evolution of the conflict.
• Basic needs: to respond to the most acute needs for displaced households hosted by the local population or living in collective settings, HI is providing hygiene and non-food item kits, with an approach various modalities of intervention including in-kind and/or cash-based transfers.
• Humanitarian-to-humanitarian logistics (ATLAS Logistique): To facilitate the delivery of humanitarian assistance as close as possible to the most affected populations, HI proposes mutualized storage and transportation services to other humanitarian actors – with a specific focus on “last-mile transportation”.
2- HI Ukraine Program:
Volume: 13M€/year – 155 staff
Donors: ECHO, BHA, CDC, GMOFA, GAC, BUZA, ADH,
Partners: Ministries of Health, Social Affairs and Reintegration of the Temporarily Occupied Territories. Local organizations, hospitals, collective centers.
Ukraine’s Program is still young, so the main challenge is to structure the program and increase our capacity to implement activities all over the country with a priority to the East part of Ukraine which is the most affected by the conflict.
3- The security situation in Ukraine remains relatively stable, although there are frequent days and nights of air alerts. However, markets, restaurants and cafes are open and life continues as normal. There is a strict curfew, the hours depend on the region. There have been a few ballistic missile and drone attacks since the beginning of the war on the airport, military and logistical facilities on the outskirts, as well as a few hits on the city centers against administrative and logistical buildings. More recently, the majority of attacks have targeted energy structures, mainly power grid and power plants, which reduces the supply of electricity, water, heating system, and communication networks.
HI has 2 hubs, one in the East (based in Dnipro) and one in the West (based in Lviv) and the coordination is in Kyiv. We have activities in other cities like Lviv, Kharkiv, Poltava). HI staff is accommodated in guesthouses or in a hotel (depending on the location), usually near HI offices, restaurants, cafes, shopping centers within walking distance and near a shelter (the shelter is either in the building or very easy to reach).
Movements between sites can be made by car (Hi drivers) or by train, depending of the region and time.
