Partners at work: EU and UNICEF
Partners at work in UKRAINE
The UN Children Fund (UNICEF) and the European Union (EU) have been helping children in Ukraine since 2006. Being one of the largest donors of UNICEF in Ukraine the EU has helped children with most vital needs with a special focus on children in difficult circumstances and kids from Chornobyl area.
Currently, UNICEF and EU joined their efforts in supporting Ukraine on the path towards an AIDS-free generation. This new project on building the capacity for non-state actors in relation to HIV/AIDS prevention, treatment and care for the European Neighbourhood and Partnership countries will be implemented in Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine in 2012-2014. The financial contribution to Ukraine is USD 366,149 and the project is being implemented in the cities of Kyiv, Odesa and Mykolayv.
Previously, the EU also supported the UNICEF projects in Ukraine at improving health of children (Chornobyl area) and helping children in difficult life circumstances (Khmelnitsky region) in the amount of over USD 2 million. As Ukrainian children face new challenges, UNICEF and the EU remain committed to their common values and joint efforts for improving lives of children in Ukraine.
