Our projects in the Ukraine:

The precarious social and economic situation and high rental costs chase many Ukrainians into homelessness. Due to financial and administrative reasons the Ukrainian Government cannot support the increasing amount of homeless people. Therefore many NGOs take over assistance and registration – a pre-condition to receive social support. Merely in the 6 project regions of Volkshilfe approximately 2.250 homeless people are not registered. In addition about 190.000 people fled from the militant conflict in South-Eastern Ukraine to the Western parts of Ukraine.

Already 8 years Volkshilfe implements in cooperation with Narodna Dopomoha (Volkshilfe Ukraine) projects to support homeless people in Ukraine.
