  1. Background

The intensity of the armed violence in Ukraine is having a severe humanitarian impact on the population. The full-scale war has resulted in loss of life, injuries, and mass movement of civilian population throughout the country and to neighboring countries, as well as severe destruction and damage to civilian infrastructure and residential housing. According to the Government of Ukraine, over 800,000 houses have been damaged or destroyed since the start of the war, with thousands of people now living in collective centers or damaged buildings unable to provide adequate protection against harsh weather conditions during the upcoming winter season. The harsh weather conditions, limitation in accessing functioning markets for solid fuel, stoves, winter clothes, and other winter essentials, and increased proximity in confined environments increase health risks especially among vulnerable populations such as older persons, pregnant women, young children, persons with disabilities or chronic disease.

IOM is rapidly scaling up Shelter, Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH), and Non-Food items emergency intervention and 2022-2023 winterization strategy in Ukraine. The intervention includes direct and in-direct relief items distribution which aims to address needs of internally displaced persons (IDPs) and other affected people in priority locations across Ukraine in a timely and accountable manner.

IOM invites interested non-governmental organizations and nonprofit agencies wishing to participate in implementing above mentioned activities. With this call, IOM seeks to establish a pool of partners with capacities and willing to contribute to IOM Emergency Response Mechanism through the prepositioning, distribution and monitoring of non-food item (NFI) kits, basic WASH supplies, emergency shelter kits (ESK) and core winterization relief-items, including solid fuel, insulation materials and heating appliances.
