ISSA Connects for Ukraine will feature ISSA Network’s efforts to provide timely and meaningful support to children and families that have been affected by the war in Ukraine and in countries where they fled.
After a brief introduction to ISSA’s Five Streams of Action guiding the Ukraine Response Initiative for the medium and long-term, and an overview of the support provided in the past eight months, ISSA Members will present information about their contexts. Members will share the challenges they face, as well as the solutions they are providing to support the children and families they work with throughout the devastating impacts of war.
