PUI is providing assistance to around 7 million people in 21 countries – in the Caribbean, Africa, Asia, Middle East and Europe.
Humanitarian situation and needs:
Since April 2014, Eastern Ukraine has been experiencing significant armed conflict. A significant part of the Donetsk and Lugansk Oblasts (regions) are now controlled by self-proclaimed republics, still not recognized by the international community: “Donetsk People’s Republic” and “Lugansk People’s Republic.” Despite the signature of a ceasefire agreement between the Ukrainian authorities and the de facto authorities, fighting has persisted, causing a considerable number of casualties and a humanitarian crisis that is still largely uncovered. As per the international agreements of 2015, a line of contact divides the country between the areas controlled by the Government of Ukraine and the areas under the control of the de facto authorities in the non-government controlled areas. The conflict is still active, with regular fighting and shelling along and on both sides of the contact line. The conflict has had and continues to have an extremely negative impact on the population living in the region pushing 3.2 million of people to be in need of humanitarian assistance and has caused the displacement of 1.4 million people (registered) mostly concentrated in the areas closer to the conflict zone.
Humanitarian access to certain areas remains very limited, particularly in zones where armed hostilities are taking place, and hampering the delivery of humanitarian assistance to the most vulnerable people who are in need of humanitarian aid due to the combined impact of conflict, displacement and extreme poverty. Since the beginning of the conflict, population faces shortage in food, health services, basic household items and shelter, and suffer of psychological distress.
While recent political developments on the front of international negotiations have raised hopes for a solution to settle the conflict, there is still a long way to go for conflicting parties to agree.
Our action on the field
PUI priority is to improve or restore equitable access to quality health services as well as to water, sanitation and hygiene for the most vulnerable population living in cities located along the contact line in the Donetsk Oblast. PUI focus of provision of humanitarian aid to vulnerable population within the conflict-affected area employing complex approach strategy based on technical, medical and non-medical expertise.
