Every region, regardless of geographic location, should be prepared in advance for emergencies, including evacuation.
R2P with the support of UKaid has provided material assistance to social institutions in Vinnytsia, Khmelnytsky, and Chernivtsi regions. The goods include portable loudspeakers, walkie-talkies, reflective bracelets, first aid kits, pillows, blankets, civil protection information posters, hygiene kits, etc. The goods can be used during emergencies and evacuations.
In total, 21 institutions received the aid, including geriatric nursing homes, orphanages, and psychoneurological nursing homes that care for vulnerable people, including IDPs.
The provision of material support was preceded by an accessibility and inclusion assessment, including an evaluation of the protective structures of these institutions. As part of the project, our staff also conducted educational training on implementing and awareness of international humanitarian law/protection standards. Only such a comprehensive approach can keep people safe during emergencies.
Project “Strengthening Civil Protection and Emergency Response Capacity in Ukraine” implemented by the CF Right to Protection within the framework of the 3P Consortium and is funded with UK aid from the British people.

As a partner of the Response Consortium, “Right to Protection” Charitable Foundation is actively implementing the project “Addressing the immediate multi-sectoral humanitarian needs of IDPs and conflict-affected populations inside Ukraine”.
Within its framework, we have successfully expanded our approach of providing assistance by mobile groups – teams consisting of professional psychologists, social workers, lawyers, mobile groups` coordinators and drivers. In such team composition, our specialists regularly visit the most vulnerable communities of Dnipropetrovsk (Pavlograd, Kryvorizky districts), Kyiv (Buchansky, Brovarsky, Bilotserkivskyi, Boryspilskyi, Obukhivskyi, Fastivskyi districts) and Chernivtsi (Dnistrovskyi, Hertsaivskyi, Chernivtsi districts) regions.
As of the end of November, our six mobile groups have already provided psychosocial support to more than 1366 unique beneficiaries by conducting individual and group psychological consultations, providing social support and transportation for people with reduced mobility, implementing social case management, and legal support to more than 651 unique beneficiaries by providing consultations on the most pressing issues.
Also, our specialists support the information awareness of Ukrainians by distributing informational materials about MHPSS, using various channels for this purpose – printed materials, Telegram channel of psychological support, etc.
Within the framework of this project, we also have an advocacy component: a team of analysts ensures that IDPs and persons affected by the war who find themselves in a difficult legal situation are guaranteed the observance of their human rights, despite the displacement and pressure caused by the war, actively cooperating with local authorities in communities. Such advocacy activity at the local level takes place by providing advice and support in the implementation of national legislation by, in particular, developing local legislative documents and identifying gaps in the provisions of local legislation: an appropriate plan for their resolution will also be developed with representatives, with an emphasis on the procedures of providing social services by municipal institutions.
Also, within the framework of this project, our Expert methodologist, an experienced psychotherapist with more than 10 years of counseling experience, provides assistance and training to local stakeholders in host communities (including local authorities, starostas, social service providers and institutions, activists, etc.) on psychosocial support in crisis situations at the community level: having already trained more than 150 participants during her work at “Right to Protection”, our trainer successfully conducted the first training within the framework of this project, providing invaluable knowledge and skills to 21 participants.
We appreciate the opportunity to provide vital support to the Ukrainian population affected by the war, regardless of whether they are directly in the areas that have been attacked or are moving within the country: we continue to work and help!
