I wanted to keep you informed of UNHCR’s response in Ukraine this weekend, following the horrific attack on an apartment block in the city of Dnipro.
As you may have followed in news, an attack on a residential building injured and killed dozens of civilians on Saturday. Rescue efforts to find survivors in the rubble have been underway.

In Dnipro, UNHCR has been working with its partners to support people affected by this tragic event. Efforts continue and relief has so far included:
· assistance with temporary accommodation for families now left homeless
· thermal blankets, clothing and hygiene kits
· tarpaulins to help residents in adjacent damaged buildings
· psychological support for victims of the attack
We are hugely grateful to everyone who is supporting our current winter appeal. It is support like this which ensures UNHCR teams can respond rapidly when a new emergency strikes, whether in Ukraine or in other conflicts around the world.
With your support, UNHCR can stay and deliver to protect people fleeing the horrors of war and persecution – wherever and whenever that help is needed.
Thank you for your solidarity.
