Daily Noon Briefing Highlights - 15 September 2022
In Ukraine, our humanitarian colleagues continue to expand the response to reach people impacted by the war, including those close to the front line and in areas that have recently shifted control back to the Ukrainian authorities.
Over the last couple of weeks, we and our partners delivered about 1,400 shelter kits and 35,000 food kits that have been distributed by the authorities to families in villages of Khersonska oblast. Each food kit has enough food for one person for one month. Until recently, these villages in Khersonska oblast were inaccessible for humanitarian workers due to hostilities.
The deliveries follow requests received by the Humanitarian Coordinator, Denise Brown, during her recent meetings with authorities in different areas of eastern and southern Ukraine.
According to the authorities, the main needs of people living in these areas include shelter, food, water and specific supplies for the cold season, which has already begun in Ukraine.
