History of the Foundation


The organisation started its activities as a part of the HIAS Representative Office in Ukraine.


HIAS Ukraine established the Right to Protection Charitable Foundation as a separate, independent organisation.

The first area of activity of R2P was Assistance to Refugees and Asylum Seekers, launched from the moment of establishment of the HIAS office in Ukraine.


R2P launched the Assistance to Internally Displaced Persons and the War-Affected Population programme. The Foundation opened new offices in the East of Ukraine, monitored the protection of the rights of the affected population and provided legal assistance to the most affected communities in Donetsk, Luhansk, Dnipro and Kharkiv regions. The organisation had offices in Mariupol, Sievierodonetsk, and Sloviansk.
