U.S. Announces Over $8M in Funding to Support Refugees from Ukraine in Czech Republic

The Department of State has announced $8.2 million in new funding that will be directed to international organizations supporting refugees from Ukraine and the communities that assist them in the Czech Republic.  This $8.2 million is part of over $107 million the United States has provided to support European countries that have welcomed and supported those fleeing Russia’s brutal war of aggression against Ukraine.

“This funding for international organizations working to support Ukrainian refugees in the Czech Republic demonstrates firm U.S. support for our Czech Allies as we respond together to Russia’s unjustifiable war,” said Ambassador Bijan Sabet.

In the Czech Republic, the recently announced $8.2 million will be provided as follows:

  • International Organization for Migration: $ 1,400,000
  • United Nations Children’s Fund: $ 3,300,000
  • United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees: $ 1,500,000
  • World Health Organization: $ 2,000,000

In Fiscal Year 2023, the United States has provided more than $605 million in humanitarian assistance to support those who have been displaced or otherwise impacted by Russia’s war.  Since February 2022, the United States has provided more than $2.1 billion in humanitarian assistance for the people of Ukraine, both Inside Ukraine and in the region.
