As of March 15, less than three weeks since war began on Feb. 24,  more than 3 million people had crossed into Poland, Romania, Moldova, Slovakia, Hungary and other neighboring countries — over 2.3 million since March 1, according to data from UNHCR, the UN's lead refugee agency.

UNICEF's emergency response teams, who have been on the ground in Ukraine since 2014, addressing impacts of conflict on children in the eastern region, have significantly scaled up operations all across the country since war broke out Feb. 24, 2022. UNICEF's humanitarian work in Ukraine focuses on meeting the most critical urgent needs for safety, health care, safe water and nutrition, protection while also safeguarding children's rights and long term well-being.
