Our most recent project in Kenya is working in an area inhabited by the Kamba community. 50% of the community is made up of children and most families eat what they grown in their own gardens. But the land there is dry and the rain is unreliable so food is not plentiful and children’s health suffers because of the lack of nutrition, clean drinking water and sanitation.
One year ago this week, Russia invaded Ukraine, driving millions from their homes, destroying cities and beginning a war which, 12 months on, appears to have no end in sight. Read about the work that Team Hope have been doing to support displaced Ukrainians and how we will assist with the longer term needs now developing for the many people who fled their homes at short notice and need help adapting to new realities.
6 months ago the news of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine shocked the world. Since then at least 12 million Ukrainians have fled their homes with over 5 million leaving the country entirely in search of safety. Team Hope have been working with our partners to help those in Ukraine as well as in the neighboring countries of Romania and Moldova to support refugees.
Team Hope is assisting those fleeing conflict in the Ukraine through our partners in Moldova & Romania, to provide shelter, hygiene kits, food and psychosocial support to those, primarily women and children, who have crossed the border to escape the war.
"I didn’t use to see any difference between the sound of air defence and missile shots. And I didn’t use to be woken up at night by the sounds of air raid sirens or stay in a bomb shelter throughout the night… and now I do. We all do. One morning changed our reality forever."
