This document provides an initial rapid analysis of the situation for children in institutions in Ukraine. It is based on data provided by the Ukrainian government, as well as input from DPOs and NGOs that work with children in Ukraine, Poland and Moldova.
It is not a comprehensive analysis, but is instead a snapshot of the situation of children in institutions in Ukraine, who are at a heightened risk of severe harm. It provides recommendations to address the particular risks faced by this group of children. It is hoped this will prove a useful tool for advocacy and programming for member organisations.
This document does not focus on adults.
