World Health Organization: About half a million refugees from Ukraine need mental health care
The war in Ukraine has been going on for about a month, after the Russian army invaded the country, and today the World Health Organization revealed the impact of the war on the mental health of the refugees. According to the data presented, about half a million Ukrainian refugees who have crossed the Polish border need treatment following mental disorders they have developed due to the situation.
In addition, the World Health Organization claimed that so far 30,000 refugees have been diagnosed as “suffering from severe mental disorders”. The organization’s representative in Poland, Paloma Kochi, added that “most refugees reach the border when they suffer from physical problems such as dehydration and diarrhea, but the main need of most of them is emotional support following trauma.”
At the same time, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) announced this morning that the number of refugees from Ukraine following the war had risen to 3,528,346 people. Of all the refugees, about 2 million fled across the border to Poland.
Meanwhile, the Russian siege of the city of Mariupol continues to border on a high price. Because of this, Ukraine turned to Russia and demanded that it be allowed to open humanitarian corridors that would allow people to leave. Deputy Prime Minister Irina Warszawuk reiterated the demand in a live speech.
