Ukraine crisis: What can business do for children and their families?

UNICEF and ICC have set out the actions companies can take to support children in Ukraine affected by the crisis.

The Ukraine crisis is a child rights crisis.

The ongoing conflict in Ukraine poses an immediate threat to the lives and well-being of the country’s 7.5 million children and is displacing a growing number of them from their homes.

Children have been killed, wounded, uprooted and severely distressed by the escalating violence all around them.

As this crisis evolves, many more are expected to be displaced.

Businesses can play a key role in raising awareness on the need to protect children at all times, and can call for peers to support efforts to provide critical services for children and their families.

Companies and business leaders can use their influence, reach and channels to promote messages to rally the business community.

This joint document outlines how companies can donate to critical services for children, speak up to raise awareness, and act in ways that protect employees, suppliers and their families in Ukraine. UNICEF and ICC have set out the actions companies can take to support children in Ukraine affected by the crisis.
