“The UN and our humanitarian partners urgently appeal to find $52 million to provide the sharpest and urgent humanitarian needs with the approach of winter when the temperature will fall to -15 up to – 20 degrees Celsius,” Dujarric underlined.
He drew the attention to the fact that the plan of the UN humanitarian response for Ukraine in 2019 is financed by 32% or $16 million and $162 million are needed for its implementation.
These funds are needed for the protection of the civilians, aid to the victims of mine laying and people who live within 5-km zone near the contact line, provision of the medical assistance in the conflict zone, marking of the mined territories and mine clearance before snow falling. According to Dujarric, about 2 million people live in this zone.
On February 12, 2019, the UN based the United fund of humanitarian aid to Ukraine and urged the donors to help the citizens of Donbas suffering from the armed conflict.
Earlier UN Monitoring Mission for Human Rights released a report, which said that eight civilians perished and another 60 were wounded in Donbas since May 16 till August 15.
