Over 10 million people have been forcibly displaced from their homes in Ukraine since hostilities began on 24th February, 2022. 4.6 million people have fled Ukraine and sought refuge in neighbouring countries, mostly women, girls, and boys.
As men aged between 18 and 60 years are required to stay in Ukraine to join the fighting, most of the refugees are women, boys and girls and the elderly and people with disabilities.
As of early April 2022, more than 1,202,000 people have entered Romania from Ukraine, far exceeding the target projected in the Government’s response planning and an estimated 47% plan to stay in the country as long as the conflict continues.
