Johnson Organization Foundation is helping children all over the world since 2009.
Following an escalation in hostilities on the night of February 23, 7.5million Children in Ukraine are in grave danger of physical harm, severe emotional distress and displacement. Just days later, the deaths of three children and two teachers were reported when a missile struck a school in Gorlovka in Eastern Ukraine as Russia military operations escalated.
Today, war is forcing children and families across Ukraine into basements and bomb shelters to escape explosions. More than 67,000 people have already crossed into Romania, some traveling on foot with minimal belongings.
In Eastern Ukraine, more than 400,000 children live in the areas at high risk of the direct impacts of the presence of soldiers and artillery, including being injured or killed by guns, landmines and explosive weapons, or being displaced from their homes.
Temperatures in the capital of Kyiv are dropping below freezing, and displaced children may face long nights and days exposed to brutal conditions. Many families forced to flee will require help with their shelter, food, and clean water needs
Every effort should be made to find a diplomatic solution and avert a catastrophic war. Children must be protected from harm at all times.
