UN asking to allocate $435 mln for humanitarian aid to Ukraine
The United Nations (UN) is asking for $435 million for humanitarian aid for Ukraine to pass the winter period, the Ministry of Reintegration of Temporarily Occupied Territories of Ukraine reports, citing the UN Office.
"In connection with the adjustment of the Humanitarian Response Plan, the UN asks partners to allocate $435 million in aid for Ukraine. This is stated on the website of the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA Ukraine)," the Ministry of Reintegration said on the Telegram channel on Tuesday.
The UN believes that these funds will make it possible to provide more than 1.7 million people with humanitarian aid during the winter period all over Ukraine until March 2024.
As noted, the corresponding Humanitarian Response Plan is being implemented in support of the efforts of the Government of Ukraine, as well as national, regional and local authorities. In the future, it will be supplemented by a regular program designed to meet the needs of more than 11 million Ukrainians.
As part of the response measures for 2023-2024, support will be provided, first of all, to communities where active hostilities were conducted or are being conducted, namely in Donetsk, Dnipropetrovsk, Kharkiv, Kherson, Luhansk, Mykolaiv, Sumy and Zaporizhia regions.
