The Safeguarding Resource and Support Hub for Eastern Europe (RSH EE) is a programme that serves civil society organisations responding to the war on Ukraine. It provides practical and accessible safeguarding resources aiming to reduce the risk of harm to those they work with.
Governments, NGOs, faith-based organisations, and volunteers across Eastern Europe have mobilised to welcome and offer support to Ukrainian refugees. However, the crisis and its response present many safeguarding and protection risks. Children and vulnerable individuals face particularly high risks.
Come and be part of our launch event on 21 November 2022, 14:00-15:30 CET, online, together with our distinguished speakers!
In our event chaired by Susannah Taylor, regional lead Safeguarding Hub Eastern Europe you will hear about whether emergency situations and safeguarding are a dichotomy or not from Alketa Lasku, regional safeguarding child protection adviser, TdH.
