Shelter for Ukraine refugees

Solidarity, support and shelter
As the crisis in Ukraine continues to unfold, some 2 million refugees have fled into Poland, Romania, and Hungary. As an organization that has been supporting shelter needs worldwide Habitat responded immediately in the neighboring countries: Poland, Romania, Hungary and Slovakia.

Our teams of shelter experts are already working with other aid organizations and government officials at the border in Romania and Hungary and we are collaborating with partners on an appropriate response in Poland and Slovakia. We offer exhausted refugees a first safe place for them to gather their strengths and help with their first basic needs.

With predictions of millions of refugees arriving and looking to settle across Romania, Hungary and chiefly Poland, we know that the biggest challenge facing host communities is an existing housing deficit which can only be exacerbated by the huge influx of refugees. That is why Habitat is already working on the next step making arrangements where refugees can be offered long term shelter enabling them to start building back their lives for better or worse.

100 days of Habitats response for refugees from Ukraine

04-06-2022 | 13:29 Just days after Russia invaded Ukraine on Feb. 24, Habitat for Humanity teams began responding to the resulting refugee crisis by helping displaced families with shelter and other emergency needs at Ukraine’s border with Romania and Hungary. Help was also provided in major cities such as Warsaw (Poland), Bucharest (Romania) and Budapest (Hungary).  Watch the short 2 minute video on Habitat’s response since the crisis started more than three months ago. Much more work lies ahead. Habitat is partnering with governments and other organizations to find mid- and long-term housing for the many that have been displaced from their homes.
