Daily Noon Briefing Highlights – 10 June 2022
We continue to step up support to millions of people who have now endured 107 days of war.
We and our partners have reached more than 8.1 million people with aid since February 24th. In the past week alone, we have reached more than 350,000 people.
Over 6.7 million people have received food aid, while nearly 1.7 million have been reached with cash assistance, which is critical amid soaring prices of goods and shrinking job opportunities. More than 3.3 million people have been able to access clean water and improved sanitation, a surge from just over 400,000 people a couple of weeks ago.
Additionally, more than 2.7 million people have been able to access health care services. However, the number of people reached is just half of the nearly 16 million men, women and children who need urgent humanitarian aid in Ukraine.
This is due to the lack of aid workers’ access because of hostilities, as well as landmines and the destruction of roads, particularly in the eastern oblasts of Donetska and Luhanska. Humanitarian operations are also extremely limited in some parts of southern Ukraine, including Kherson.
An update on the money: as of today, we have received nearly $1.7 billion – or 74 per cent – of the funding required until the end of this August. We continue to call on donors to give generously as soon as possible so we can support every Ukrainian person in need.
