What we do





A winterization program for 2014-2015 jointly implemented with UNHCR.

Program objective: meeting urgent construction materials’ needs of a variety of end users in the conflict-affected areas ranging from private housing to schools and infrastructure objects. Under the winterization effort the Agency distributed 80 thousand sq.m. of tarpaulin and 60 thousand sq.m. of plastic sheets mostly to meet temporary roofing needs. The projects geography spanned 15 localities ion Donetsk and Luhansk regions with about 15 thousand individual end users.




A reconstruction effort for damaged housing in the conflict-affected areas was started in summer 2014 and is ongoing.

The project is implemented as a joint venture between the Agency and other stakeholders, including the Ukrainian Philanthropic Marketplace and volunteer groups.

The effort resulted in reconstruction of 50 housing units with varying degrees of destruction ranging from providing roofing and window glazing to full restoration.



A program aimed at psychological training of medics taking part in the Anti-Terrorist Operation jointly implemented with the Ukrainian Association of Doctors-Psychologists.

The program was started in summer 2015 with the objective of providing basic training in giving in-action urgent psychological assistance by medics.
