"Families host families"
Every family can help Ukrainians fleeing the war.
Families host families" is a joint social volunteer project of the Ukrainian Leadership Academy and the FEDORIV agency, which calls on families in every corner of Ukraine to help other families fleeing shelling and bombing.
We want as many families as possible to accept internally displaced persons. This will give a positive impetus and support to the society and the Armed Forces of Ukraine, as well as demonstrate our unity to the world.
Millions of people are already forced to leave their homes and look for new housingInternally displaced persons need immediate humanitarian assistance like housing, food, clothing, medicine, and psychological support. The state and numerous volunteer groups do take care of it. However, this resource is not enough. One of the most effective ways to meet the challenge is to join volunteering with the whole family.
Thousands of families are already opening their homes to their compatriotsUkrainians accept relatives, friends and complete strangers.
We hosted people from Kyiv and Cherkasy as well as families from Zaporizhia and Chernihiv. One evening, when we came home and no one was there, it was so unnaturally quiet. That should not be the case. Now 5 guys from Kharkiv live with us. The walls seem alive when someone fills them.
Now 7 people from Kyiv live in our apartment. I believe if we can help a family and open the door of our home, it should be done. I understand that I am not very effective in coordinating volunteering or collecting humanitarian aid but if I can be useful, so be it. These are our people, Ukrainians.
We are united not only in the fight against the enemy but also in mutual support in the rear
Ukrainians do not leave anyone on the street, they do not leave anyone in trouble. We demonstrate unity, both in the face of the enemy and in supporting other.
