About

The annexation of Crimea by Russia in March 2014 was followed by a separation of two border areas in the east: Donetsk and Luhansk. Despite political attempts to create peace via negotiations, the situation is still in deadlock and the ceasefire is violated on a regular basis. Almost one and a half million people have had to escape from the warzones over the past two years or so. They have now been “uprooted” in their own country. It was a huge challenge for Caritas to successfully tackle the problem thanks to our support and the support of multiple partners in the network. The economic situation in the country already left little to be desired, and the families that were already living in poverty due to the crisis, are affected the most by this insidious civil war. With our help, the houses of displaced families were restored and prepared for the winter.
