United for Ukraine resumes the program of providing temporary housing for Ukrainians: details
Since February 24, 2022, United for Ukraine has successfully helped more than 12,000 people displaced from Ukraine due to the russian invasion. This temporary shelter program has been a great help to many, allowing them to find safe haven and facilitating their adaptation to new conditions abroad.
Now, thanks to the support of its partners Airbnb.org and PHINEO, UFU is renewing the program to continue to help Ukrainians. However, the program is open only to those who have not previously used United for Ukraine's housing services.
Key parameters of United for Ukraine
The program is valid until December 31, 2023. Housing can be obtained for a period of 7 to 30 days.
Free temporary housing is provided:

- Children with their parents or guardians who leave Ukraine for medical reasons.
- Military personnel, veterans and their families who leave Ukraine for medical treatment.
