Survey of Ukrainian refugee experiences
A survey by the Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) found that 68% of refugees from Ukraine who live in Poland, Romania, and Moldova struggle to meet basic needs and risk falling into poverty. The survey also revealed that refugees in collective centres, mothers and children, pensioners, and people with disabilities need help accessing basic necessities. Around 45% of refugees reportedly skip meals, while Ukrainian refugees in Poland and Moldova (especially Roma refugees) say they have been moved to substandard housing and have been forced to borrow money for survival. The NRC is calling on host countries and international donors to ensure the continued protection of refugees from Ukraine by developing policies that will prevent people from falling into further hardship.
