The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in Ukraine, with financial support from the European Union, has transferred household appliances to support internally displaced persons staying in university dormitories in Kharkiv.
Over 270 pieces of equipment – including stoves, refrigerators, microwaves, water heaters, washing machines, and electric kettles – were handed over to four universities that are hosting more than 1,000 internally displaced persons. In addition, UNDP and the European Union have already delivered 18 generators to the Kharkiv “points of invincibility” (special shelters with all basic services) and educational institutions, and 8 Starlink stations to ensure uninterrupted internet connectivity.
“The appliances we handed over to Kharkiv facilities are essential to help the local population and internally displaced persons get through the harsh winter ahead,” said Frederik Coene, Head of Cooperation at the EU Delegation to Ukraine.
The appliances were purchased and delivered within the UN Recovery and Peacebuilding Programme and with the European Union’s financial support.
