Project Report | Jul 8, 2024
2023 Annual Report

By Cyrine Bettaieb | Communications Officer

The war in Ukraine led to the largest civilian displacement in Europe since the Second World War. Millions of people were forced to flee their homes to escape violence, crossing the border with neighboring countries or becoming displaced within their own country.
In 2023, TSF worked with local shelters to meet people’s communication needs across Ukraine.

As people were fleeing the conflict and searching of security, the needs for connectivity and information increased. Many
people left the country, but millions stayed in Ukraine, becoming Internally Displaced People (IDP) in temporary shelters
and centers across the country. As the war evolves, the connectivity needs evolve too, especially for those sheltering in IDP centers.
Many young people were forced to leave their school, which not only means losing access to education, but also to what school can bring, such as friends, community, and structure. Many young Ukrainians now study online, making Internet
access essential for many families. But in the IDP collective centers, the Internet is not always available.
Many services need to be carried out online, such as ordering medication, registering for assistance, or dealing with administrative formalities.


For many families, one of the only ways to stay afloat financially is to work remotely, which cannot be done without Internet access.
Many use 4G plans, but this can be a financial burden in wartime for those living in shelters.
TSF works with various shelters across the country to identify local needs and provide connectivity in the most efficient
way possible.

In collaboration with Internet service providers, our team installs connectivity equipment in shelters to distribute
free Wi-Fi. Since the beginning of the crisis, TSF has been supporting the affected population and humanitarian
organizations by providing adequate means of communication to NGOs and affected individuals.
This year, TSF’s connectivity in Ukraine supported eight collective centres in Vinnitsya, Dnipro, Lviv and Chernivtsi, enabling more than 5,000 people to access the internet freely.
TSF’s presence in Ukraine enables us to be proactive in our response to any urgent need that may prevail because of the war.
