U.S. Humanitarian Assistance Globally and in Ukraine

Reducing human suffering and helping the world’s refugees are cornerstones of U.S. national security policy. When conflict emerges or natural disasters strike, the United States is committed to assisting those in need. The United States’ effort to alleviate human suffering includes both - the delivery of assistance and advocacy for the rights and needs of vulnerable persons. As a part of its effort on humanitarian issues, what is the United States doing globally? What are its priorities in Ukraine? Please join Jonathan Hayes for short presentation and informal discussion on U.S. humanitarian assistance, globally and in Ukraine.

Jonathan Leif Hayes serves as the Regional Refugee Coordinator for the Department of State based in Tbilisi, Georgia covering humanitarian issues in Central Asia, the Caucasus, and Eastern Europe, including Ukraine. In his current role, Jonathan monitors and evaluates U.S. humanitarian assistance in the region and works to advance advocacy efforts on humanitarian issues. Before working on humanitarian assistance, Jonathan worked as a Political Officer on the Ukraine Desk at the Department of State in Washington, DC. He has also previously served in Moldova and Costa Rica. Prior to joining the State Department, Jonathan worked as a defense sector consultant for IHS Janes in Washington, DC and as a microfinance consultant for FINCA in Georgia and Armenia. Jonathan served as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Georgia (2003-2005).
