TGH background

“Actor in a sustainable and shared solidarity”

Founded in 1994, TGH is a French international solidarity organization based in Lyon.

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 2022 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 Since October and the attack on the Kerch Bridge (08/10/2022) linking Crimea to Russia, reprisals have been unstoppable, mainly on public service infrastructures, notably power stations and water treatment and distribution stations in all the country’s major cities.

October 2022 saw an increase in the number of IDPs (+280,000 / +4.5%) growing from 6.2 M to 6.5 M) in the country and a movement of 450,000 (+7%) of those already IDP, most of them to or from the East of the country.
