The War is Impacting Mental and Physical Well-being of Ukrainian Children

Ukraine’s vulnerable populations have been greatly impacted by russia’s full-scale invasion, and a particularly grim picture is developing for children.

By the numbers:

  • 483 children have tragically lost their lives.
  • Over 1,000 children were wounded in the conflict.
  • 1,500 children orphaned, as reported by the National Social Service of Ukraine.

However, the physical toll is just the beginning. For war survivors, the psychological trauma is expected to leave long-lasting scars, affecting their development into adolescence and beyond.

Devastating Impact on an Entire Generation

The war affects children’s lives in many ways.  A recent report from UNICEF underscores this, pointing out that:

  • 1.5 years of violence, fear, loss, and interrupted education made an indelible impact on children’s lives.
  • 1.5 million children are now at risk of severe mental health issues.
  • Healthcare infrastructure is severely damaged, hampering essential care and vaccinations.
