Germany Allocates €200 Mln to Protect Vulnerable Ukrainians

The state will provide grant funds to help internally displaced Ukrainians

Due to the Russian war, about 13.6 million (almost 30% of the population of Ukraine) were forced to leave their homes and flee to other regions of Ukraine or other countries. According to the German MIA, as of October, the state received 38.000 Ukrainians. All these people need to meet basic needs: housing, food, medicine, children's items etc.

On December 7, the Ukrainian government released information on humanitarian funding from Germany. Bank KfW and the Ministry of finance of Ukraine have signed an agreement to allocate €200 million to strengthen social protection and emergency support for internally displaced persons and vulnerable populations. According to the minister of finance of Ukraine Serhii Marchenko, these funds will also become the basis for the post-war restoration of Ukrainian society.

"Through this program, we want to strengthen the social and economic resilience of internally displaced persons and thus prepare the best foundations for the entire Ukrainian society for economic development and recovery," German ambassador to Ukraine Anka Feldhusen.

Germany has also allocated €7.6 million to sponsor a search and identification program for missing Ukrainians.
