The Shelter Project: assistance to internally displaced people

As of June 2022, there are 15,7 million Ukrainians who need help. 7,1 million of them are internally displaced. 

Relying on its network of partner non-governmental organizations, East Europe Foundation, since the very first days of the war, has been implementing the Shelter Project aimed at providing emergency help to these people.

Together with partners, we furnish shelters and provide internally displaced persons with food, hygienic items, and psychological support. To complete these works, we raise funds from international organizations and companies as well as from private donors; we complete the entire cycle of works related to reception, transfer, and distribution of humanitarian aid cargos.

As of May 2022, we provided help to 65 000 Ukrainians. In 9 oblasts of Ukraine, we supported the establishment of 30 shelters for internally displaced persons and transferred 217 tons of humanitarian aid to 15 oblasts. You can find more information on our previous activities here

During May and June, our work within the Shelter Project was supported by several international donors (particularly by the Embassy of the Kingdom of Denmark in Kyiv, Fondation de France, Sy Syms Foundation). Thanks to this support, EEF has an opportunity to expand the range of non-profit and charity organizations that efficiently support those affected by war in their communities. 

We are grateful to all organizations and people who supported and keep supporting the Shelter Project  – financially, logistically, informationally, and by providing humanitarian cargo. You can join our effort in the following ways: 

  1. by sending humanitarian aid 
  2. by transferring funds to a special emergency fund (you can find details for transfers in UAH, USD, and EUR here)

With your support, we will win!

Glory to Ukraine! 🇺🇦
