Britain and Poland to provide housing for IDPs, help with generators

Mar 28, 2023

On March 28, the UK and Poland signed a joint statement announcing a project to provide temporary housing and electricity for Ukrainians.

This is stated in a joint statement of the British-Polish project posted on the British government's website.

According to the statement, the UK has announced up to £10 million to support a new Polish-British partnership that will provide temporary shelters for internally displaced Ukrainians. As part of the project, a town for IDPs has already been officially opened in Lviv.

"The project has supported the development of two towns for IDPs - in Lviv in western Ukraine and in Poltava in eastern Ukraine - and will support Ukrainians who fled the fighting or lost their homes due to Russian shelling. More than 700 displaced Ukrainians will receive assistance," the British-Polish partnership said in a statement.

The two countries will also provide £2.5 million worth of generators to support schools, hospitals, and community centers across Ukraine. This will help approximately 450,000 people in the territories liberated from Russian troops or in areas affected by the fighting.

In addition, the Ukrainian Red Cross will receive up to £2.6 million in support.
