During 2022, WCUK continued to reach participants through delivering multi sectoral programmes, working with local partnership, supporting civil society through with a focus on capacity building, and scaling global programmes. 

Furthermore, we combined expertise with War Child Holland to launch a joint emergency Ukraine Regional Response in Ukraine, Moldova, and Romania. In addition, our programme in Afghanistan massively scaled up with over five projects running across all interventions including EiE (Education in Emergencies) and FSL (Food Security and Livelihoods). This was achieved prior to the current regulations in the country. 

We are grateful to our partners and supporters for enabling us to achieve these outcomes and helping to provide for children in need around the world. Thank you.
