Oxfam reaction to the recent attack on Hroza, Ukraine

Published: 6th October 2023

Responding to the recent wave of attacks in Ukraine which killed at least 52 people, Nicola Bay, Oxfam’s Organizational Lead in Ukraine said: 

“Dozens of civilians lost their lives and many more were injured. The strikes also left a trail of destruction of grain stores.  The attacks, which were near the operations being run by Oxfam and its partner organizations, will mean reaching those people already impacted by this war will be even more challenging.  

Every effort must be made to ensure innocent civilians do not suffer the consequences of this war. Oxfam urges all parties to the conflict to respect international humanitarian law and take every possible precaution to avoid loss of civilians lives or injury to civilians.”
