International Organization for Migration and EU to support over 700,000 Ukrainians during winter

The International Organization for Migration (IOM), with humanitarian funding from the European Union, will support over 700,000 Ukrainians with multi-sectoral assistance during this winter.

This support includes the refurbishment of collective centres hosting displaced people, the improvement of water supply, wastewater and heating systems, the repair of damaged homes, as well as the distribution of high-thermal blankets, bedding kits, mattresses, and hygiene items. It also includes the provision of solid fuel, and cash assistance enabling people to have flexible means for supporting themselves during winter.

In total, mobile teams will conduct repair works in 375 collective sites and social institutions, improving insulation, fixing leaking roofs, replacing broken windows, non-functioning radiators, and installing additional showers. IOM will refurbish 5,800 private homes and distribute emergency shelter kits to enable people to make necessary improvements themselves. Solid fuel will be provided to help families stay warm during the cold period. IOM will also support municipalities in areas recently retaken by the government of Ukraine with construction materials and generators.
