There are tens of thousands of
people with intellectual disabilities
at risk because of the
Russian war on Ukraine.
There are people with intellectual disabilities
struggling to understand what is happening,
and how to protect themselves.
There are thousands of children and adults
in residential “care institutions”;
at risk of being abandoned
or worse during military actions.
What our members in Ukraine say
the priorities are at the moment.
Providing supplies to families
of people with disabilities,
including medicine they rely on.
Monitoring the situation
in “care institutions” to ensure
people are not abandoned or harmed there.
As the international community
gets ready to provide humanitarian aid to Ukraine
I would urge them to include people with
disabilities in your planning and interventions.
Same goes to the European Union
members states as they activate
the Civil Protection Mechanism.
Local organisations are waiting for support
and read to help deliver it.
