Record numbers of refugees have been documented in 2022, the war in Ukraine has contributed greatly to the statistics. Since the full-scale russian invasion more than 8 million have been forced to flee their homes and move to more peaceful regions. 100 000 people have nowhere to come back to. Russians destroyed their homes with missiles, houses left standing were looted and deliberately damaged. The figures are quite understated, Ukraine will be able to calculate the damage when the war is over.
In 2022, more than 500,000 Ukrainians were forced to move from places of active hostilities to Lviv, in the west of Ukraine. Some of them had some financial savings and the opportunity to find separate housing in a new place, and some came literally with nothing, because they fled without belongings and money under the threat of air bombs on their heads. It was necessary to arrange shelters and places of temporary residence for these people.
The shelter "YOUR SUPPORT" became a place where people can recover from what they experienced and focus on setting up a new life and finding a job. It has 2 floors (total area of 1,500 square meters), 2 common large halls for temporary accommodation (7-14 days) and 16 separate rooms for accommodation up to 6 months. There are 2 kitchens and 2 dining rooms, 8 bathrooms, separate showers for men and women and even a children's room. At the same time, 180 people can live in the shelter.
How long will the war in Ukraine last? What number of Ukrainians will have to abandon their homes and seek refuge? Ukrainians don't have the answers. So, 'Tvoya Opora' charity fund sees its mission in helping with accommodation at least for a year, meaning 2000-3000 people will have stayed here. The longer term may be possible as we'll have to deal with the consequences of this cruel war for many years after the war is over. Even if it's over tomorrow Ukrainians still have no homes to go to.
