GOAL was previously operational in Eastern Ukraine from 2015 – 2017, following the 2014 conflict, when the agency assisted thousands of displaced people in the Donbas region with food and financial assistance.
Returning in March 2022 following the Russian invasion, GOAL scaled up its conflict response programme directly and through local partners.
In addition to the delivery of emergency aid (food, hygiene and first aid kits) and following receipt of Irish Aid funding, GOAL's work covered the provision of information sessions on legal and protection issues, individual counselling and dissemination of information materials to internally displaced people. Mental health and psychological support services have encompassed online support and individual sessions and group therapy sessions.
