"Town for Refugees and IDPs" is expanding
The war in Ukraine continues, with disappointing news of residential buildings being shelled every day from different regions. The tragedy that occurred at the Kakhovka hydroelectric power plant destroyed the homes of tens of thousands of civilians in Kherson and Mykolaiv regions, leaving the unfortunate people homeless. Many of them have nowhere to turn for help — most volunteer organizations provide only basic necessities, and the issue of accommodation is still open.
In September 2022, the New Life Christian Mission created the project "Town for Refugees and IDPs". It is located in the village of Velykyi Dalnyk, Odesa region, consists of 53 cozy modular houses and has all the conditions for a normal life. The project consists of 120 modular houses that can accommodate up to 500 people.
Currently, the town is home to 90 refugees from Donetsk, Kharkiv, Mykolaiv and Kherson regions. These people have nowhere to go back to as their homes have been completely destroyed or are in a state of disrepair and cannot be restored. The Mission's hotline receives calls every day with requests for shelter, but unfortunately, there are no more vacant rooms in the houses.
In this regard, the town is expanding. In the spring, we purchased a neighboring plot of land where we were preparing to install modular houses. Yesterday, on August 11, 4 containers were delivered there.
We will be grateful for any financial assistance for the purchase of modular houses and their arrangement. With this project, we are helping people not to stay on the streets and rebuild their lives.
