Victory Church, Uzhgorod (Housing)
Today we are housing 124 people across 3 shelters run by our church. From the first days of the war in Ukraine a large number of people came to our church in Uzhhorod.
We help with paperwork and registration of internally displaced people, providing medical care, child care, helping in job search and make repairs in places that could be used for long term accommodation. We also arrange online classes for children displaced from their schools and even support refugees with hairdressing services.
From the first day of the war we are meeting people at the railway and bus stations, feeding them, and providing them transportation to the border with Slovakia and Romania. 612 people have already been helped to cross the border of Ukraine.
Once a week (Friday) we prepare hot lunches (120 servings) and feed migrants in Uzhhorod. Last week, 70 families received Aid kits with hygiene products, clothes, shoes, etc.
We hire 3 refugee coordinators who manage operational and legal work in shelters, prepare aid kits, hot lunches, coordinate the work of volunteers, supervise and coordinate repair works, answer hotline calls 24/7, provide advice on evacuation, settlement and other topics.
