Millions of Ukrainians Continue to Receive Aid

A year of cooperation between ADRA Ukraine and the UN World Food Program continues to provide food aid for 13 regions across Ukraine.


Exactly one year has passed since the start of the Emergency Food Assistance to the Affected Population of Ukraine project supported by ADRA Ukraine and the World Food Program.

This large-scale project covered 13 regions of Ukraine: Chernihiv, Sumy, Kyiv, Dnipro, Kherson, Donetsk, Kharkiv, Luhansk, Cherkasy, Zaporizhzhia, Mykolaiv, Odesa, and Poltava. In 2023, it will continue to be active in five regions: Kharkiv, Donetsk, Kherson, Zaporizhzhia, and Mykolaiv. Food aid in these regions is vital, as people often have nothing to eat and may not have seen fresh bread for months.

In addition to food parcels, the needy also receive bread, baby food, and food certificates.

Over the course of the ADRA project, Ukraine and WFP have provided assistance in the form of:

  • 954,005 essential food parcels

  • 1,967,102 supplemented general-purpose kits

  • 322,234 baby food sets

  • 20,151,880 loaves of bread

  • 570,089 food certificates

Those involved are sincerely grateful to the partners and volunteer organizations across Ukraine who facilitate the organization of the aid, often at the risk of their own lives. Despite the danger, everyone is fulfilling this challenging but crucial mission to provide food to those in need.

The ADRA Ukraine team appreciates the cooperation with the UN World Food Program and the ADRA office in Switzerland. They are grateful for the joint work, which inspires them not to stop in the face of any difficulties and continue to support people in difficult times.
