UKRAINE Anna, 3, and her family have been sheltering in this hospital basement since April following an upsurge of fighting in the Ukrainian city of Donetsk. A two-year conflict in Ukraine has displaced 1.5 million people, nearly 180,000 of which are children. IOCC is responding with emergency food assistance for infants and toddlers severely impacted by the conflict.

LEBANON Two Syrian refugee boys fill their bottles with safe water from a storage tank installed by IOCC. Access to
safe water is a daily concern
for refugee families living in makeshift camps with no running water or sanitation. IOCC is working to protect the health and well-being of more than 4,300 vulnerable Syrian refugees with improved access to safe water at two informal
settlements in Lebanon.

WEST BANK The freshly laid eggs that Rana gathers daily from her hen house not only help to feed her and her ailing mother, but also provide much needed income from egg sales at the farmer's market in her West Bank village of At-Tayba. IOCC is assisting 200 vulnerable Palestinian women with agricultural support to ease the daily threat of hunger and poverty for these families living in growing isolation.
