Support women in Ukraine
UN Women shares the UN Secretary-General’s concern for the safety and well-being of all those who have suffered and continue to suffer in the developing situation in Ukraine. UN Women is committed to continue to deliver on the ground for women in Ukraine.
UN Women’s existing programmes in Ukraine include:
– Preventing gender-based violence and securing justice for survivors
– Ensuring women are at the centre of peacebuilding, democracy and economic recovery
– Getting women involved in the country’s development at a local level.
Of UN Women’s local staff team, 29 are in Kyiv with their dependents. UN Women is working quickly to ensure the safety of our remaining staff in the conflict zones in Eastern Ukraine.
We will continue to work with our security specialists on the ground and local civil society partners to support women, and ensure those particularly at risk in conflict (displaced persons, HIV positive, Roma women, disabled women) are not left behind.
