General context of the project
The war in Ukraine, which started on the 24th of February 2022, shows no signs of abating and continues to drive increasing humanitarian needs across the country.

Access concerns and humanitarian needs are particularly high in eastern Donetska and Luhanska oblasts where the conflict is intensifying, and critical infrastructure damages prevent civilians from accessing basic services.
