The First Results of the EU-funded Project on Human Rights Protection of IDPs Presented in Kharkiv
September 29, 2015.
On 28th September the EU-funded Project “Human Rights Protection of Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in Ukraine” presented the first results of their work in Kharkiv. Although the project was launched only in June 2015, many IDPs were already provided with free accommodation and other necessities to adapt to new living conditions. Additionally, IDPs were provided a legal, social and psychological support, health care and medical service.
One of the main areas of support is employment of IDPs, as it increases own capabilities of IDPs and their social security. Special attention is also paid to the elderly people and people with disabilities who are the most vulnerable segments of the population.
Additionally, a fully operational resource-transit hub to assist IDPs is expected to be launched soon.
