The International Armed Conflict between Russia and Ukraine has displaced millions of people, constituting the largest humanitarian crisis in Europe since the Second World War.

Since the beginning, the Jesuit Refugee Service (JRS) has been on the frontlines of humanitarian response, working with those who have been forced to flee their homes.

In the year that has passed since the start of this coordinated response, together we have accompanied and served more than 54.000 people in 14 countries with emergency aid, shelter, psychosocial support, education, and integration, among other services. The ongoing response has also helped keep hope alive in the midst of the crisis.
