Presentation of TGH
"Actor in a sustainable and shared solidarity"
Founded in 1994, TGH is a French international solidarity organization based in Lyon. The association designs and implements emergency, rehabilitation and development programs in the following sectors: water, hygiene and sanitation, civil engineering, food security and rural development, socio-educational and psychosocial. TGH is currently operating in 11 countries in Africa, Asia, Europe and the Middle East.
On February 24, the Russian president announced a special military operation to demilitarize Ukraine. Minutes later, missiles/air raids hit all of Ukraine, including Kiev, shortly followed by a massive ground invasion from several directions, in a major escalation of the 2014 conflict and resulting in the siege of several major strategic Ukrainian cities such as Chernihiv, Kharkiv, Kherson, Kyiv, Mariupol, and Sumy. The Ukrainian president has since enacted martial law resulting in the general mobilization and management of the country by the military.
From September, UAF (Ukrainian Armed Forces) pushed back the aggressor in the east and south of the country with the recapture of some strategical cities. Meanwhile, RF forces continued their offensive with strikes across the country. In response, on September 21st, Vladimir Putin announced the partial mobilization of 300,000 people to reinforce the invasion of Ukraine. Then, from 23 to 27 September 2022, the authorities of the separatist republics of Donetsk and Lugansk, as well as the administrative authorities installed by Russia in Kherson and Zaporizhia oblasts, hold annexation referendums in the occupied territories of Ukraine that are widely regarded outside Russia as sham referendums. The results, although disputed by the international community, are all over 95% in favor of annexation. On 30 September, Vladimir Putin signed the annexation decree.
Today, the ground fighting remains very intense, taking on a "trench warfare" character and is concentrated mainly concentrated in the eastern and southern regions.
From a humanitarian perspective, the most pressing needs identified include:
cash and access to financial support
psychosocial support for a weakened mental health and limit the risk of irreversible
medicines and medical supplies
Shelter / NFI
