British foreign minister James Cleverly announced the beginning of the English-Polish project in Ukraine. The countries plan to build 2 settlements for internally displaced persons in Ukraine. These will be temporary settlements that can be used by people who have suffered from the war and lost their homes. The project will be allocated $12.3 billion.
The first settlement will be located in Western Ukraine, in Lviv. The second town for Ukrainians affected by Russia's invasion of Ukraine is planned to be implemented in the capital. The project will provide housing for more than 700 people.
"This new British-Polish partnership will help provide light, heat, and shelter to those who need it most," Cleverly reported.
It should be noted that during the year of the war, Russia caused damage to more than 700 families. So people who have fled the war live with friends and relatives or in immigrant cities. Some go abroad for the complete safety of themselves and their children. Since February 24, 2022, only the British have received 118.000 refugees from Ukraine. After a year, Ukrainians were still losing their homes and trying to start a new life, but finding a permanent home for refugees was becoming increasingly difficult. However, as the research of the organization More in Common, 8 out of 10 families that assisted Ukrainians are satisfied and consider this a positive experience.
