Ukraine is heading for a humanitarian catastrophe. Caritas insists on ensuring access to aid

“The events which began early this morning will inevitably lead to a colossal humanitarian catastrophe. It is impossible to believe that in the 21st century in the centre of Europe people have to wake up at 5am from explosions and the sound of air raid sirens,” said Tetiana Stawnychy, President of Caritas Ukraine, in reaction to the full-scale attack launched in the early hours of today in the country. Caritas is deeply concerned about the impact of this intervention on the local population, who have already been living in a critical condition eight years after the start of the crisis that killed 14,000 people and displaced another 1.5 million. The COVID-19 pandemic has also greatly aggravated the situation.

It has driven 1.5 million people from their homes, and nearly 3 million Ukrainians are in need of humanitarian aid. People in the areas of fighting do not have adequate access to drinking water, food, elektricity, or healthcare. Russian attack on Ukraine will dramatically worsen the situation in the country, and tens of thousands more people will need help to secure their basic needs.

Caritas Czech Republic Partners with UNICEF to Support Children and Mothers Health

After the COVID-19 outbreak in 2020, UNICEF Georgia and Caritas Czech Republic implemented a project aiming to ensure the continuity of maternal and child health services during the pandemic. Even though the project significantly improved the knowledge of primary healthcare (PHC) specialists in the management of children and mothers health, some gaps still needed to be addressed. With a new project financially supported by the USAID, we will work on the improvement of quality of child health services through practice facilitation and expert consultation provided to the PHC practitioners, as well as improve clinical protocols to support hospitals and train hospital staff in their use.
