THE DISPLACED

We provide assistance for displaced people at both the individual and community level. We help them to integrate locally, return home, or move to another location. They face shortages in food, health services, basic household items and shelter and suffer from psychological distress after more than five years of conflict.

We fund construction work in the Odessa region to accommodate the internal refugees forced to flee the war zone.

“We are very grateful to British-Ukrainian Aid for sending us clothes and supporting us in such dispiriting times!”
