Ukraine winterNorway pledged 1 billion Norwegian kroner (US $92 million) for humanitarian funding to Ukraine to help the country make it through another winter of war, the Norwegian government announced in a news release Tuesday.

Funding "is being channeled via the UN, including the Ukraine Humanitarian Fund, and the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement," the government said.

The key support will be provided to local civil society organizations in Ukraine as well as to “the most vulnerable people, children, refugees and the internally displaced, helping to ensure that they have access to shelter, food, water and sanitation, education, health care, and psychosocial support, as well as protection against sexual and gender-based violence,” the news release noted.

The provision of aid was announced at the Third Humanitarian Senior Officials Meeting (SOM) of Ukraine in Oslo, co-hosted by Norway and the European Union.
