HIAS Responds to the Crisis in Ukraine
Updated May 16
HIAS is closely monitoring the situation in Ukraine and neighboring countries and is responding with emergency humanitarian assistance to those who are displaced.
Across Europe, HIAS is responding to the many needs of Ukrainian refugees and helping with the immediate needs of internally displaced persons in Ukraine.
There is much concern for the safety of the staff of HIAS' long-time partner on the ground in Ukraine, Right to Protection (R2P), who have aided refugees and displaced persons since 2013. HIAS has rushed emergency funding to R2P, an independent NGO, to assist their response. R2P specialists are providing legal assistance; operating a hotline to provide information about services, evacuation, and refugee status; conducting protection monitoring at checkpoints and monitoring visits to those who have not left their home; and also distributing food and supplies.
