Our shelter: 20,542 hostel beds and refugee stories

Since the war began we have helped people who fled their homes, giving comprehensive support in Lviv. In the first 7 months we provided these displaced people with 20,542 beds in hostels, and also provided housing to 40 women and children at a time in our "Care Center" and large family house. They tell their stories of escape, adjusting and finding security.
