Thousands of people have been forced to leave their homes after the Nova Kakhovka dam was destroyed.  

The full impact of rising water along both sides of the frontline Dnipro river has yet to be seen but the UN fears it could be an environmental disaster. 

The Ukrainian authorities say at least 37 towns and villages have been flooded and 16,000 people have left their homes since the dam exploded in the morning of Tuesday 6 June. Christian Aid and Blythswood Care’s local partner Heritage Ukraine got to work immediately by supplying food, water and shelter.   

Over the coming days Heritage Ukraine, plus Christian Aid's other partners, Alliance for Public Health and World Jewish Relief, will be providing humanitarian supplies to people who have had to leave the affected areas of southern Ukraine.
