For those involved in the child protection response in Ukraine and/or neighbouring countries, we wanted to share some resources and also see if any of our community might have useful resources to add.
We have started a dropbox folder with some Child Protection resources here, primarily in Ukrainian and Russian. In this folder, you'll find various guides for mental health and psychosocial support (MHPSS) for adults and children, parenting/caregiver support, explosive ordnance risk education (EORE), considerations for those with disabilities, among others. Many resources are linked with the COVID-19 response; however, some of the information may still be useful. This folder will be updated regularly as we receive more resources.
The MHPSS Reference Group also developed an extremely useful resource kit specific to the response (available in English and Ukrainian). Additionally, you might find this service mapping from the Ukraine MHPSS Technical Working Group helpful.
What we have available for child protection in relevant languages is limited, so we would be grateful if you might share relevant protection-related resources in Ukrainian, Russian, or other languages (such as Hungarian, Polish, Romanian, or Slovak).
If there are other resources that would be fitting for the response that require translation, please do alert us as well — perhaps resources related to MHPSS and Psychological First Aid, transnational case management, UASC issues and alternative care, collaboration with other sectors on risk mitigation, etc...
If you or your organization might be able contribute to translation of resources applicable to the situation, please do reach out.
To contribute relevant resources, translation services, or other suggestions, please write in the chat below or contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
