It all started so suddenly..
24th of February. The whole country is on the move. Evacuations.
Odesa opened its doors to over 150.000 Internally Displaced People (IDPs), who fled from the most difficult living conditions on the occupied territories or front line villages and towns.

The Hub was quickly put together and the people started coming.. Mykolayiv, Kharkiv first… April – Mariouple. Donezk, Lugansk, Kherson.. dozens, hundreds.. thousands.

Packs with humanitarian aid in form of food and WASH items as well as household kits, baby products and clothes are prepared in advance in the Hub.
Each pack includes a standard food set or hygiene kits. Baby food and diapers are issued separately according to the required age and size.
Over 80 volunteers for the last 9 month selflessly offloading, sorting and packing aid.
The IDPs can also pick some clothes, shoes, duvets and household items, for most of the times people fled without anything but the clothes they wear.

In the Hub people can also receive psycological and legal support, as well as assistance in getting temporary accomodation or transportation to Europe.


The Team of volunteers is working to ensure each person feels welcomed and supported after hardships of experience.
