EU supports mobile brigades providing social and medical support to Ukrainian IDPs

More than 1,300 women and girls from 37 settlements have already received assistance from the experts of the NGO Women’s League of Donetsk Oblast, working with EU support in a mobile brigade in the Mukachevo district of the Zakarpattia region of Ukraine. This border region in western Ukraine has received many Ukrainians who have been forced to leave the zone of active hostilities.

A mobile team is an operational team of specialists, usually consisting of three people: a psychologist, a social worker and a driver with a car. The team can travel to the most inaccessible areas on a planned or emergency basis to help people who for various reasons are restricted in their mobility, as well as to provide counselling over the phone.

Housing, humanitarian, financial, medical and legal assistance are among the most frequent requests.

The work of the mobile brigade was organised by the Women’s League of Donetsk Oblast NGO, an implementing partner of UNFPA Ukraine, and is implemented within the framework of the United Nations Recovery and Peacebuilding Programme with the financial support of the European Union.

Currently there are 101 such mobile teams throughout Ukraine. 

The necessary expert contacts can be found here or you can contact the mobile team at: +380668381606.
