During last month, more than 300 Ukrainians passed through the Odesa shelter for displaced persons

Up to  90% of them, are people from the Kherson region. Oleh Mykhaylyk, chairman of the board of the Plych-o-Pkych (Side by Side) charitable foundation, a partner organization of the German NGO Mission Lifeline, told about this during a briefing at the Media Center Ukraine-Odesa.

“Our volunteer center for free accommodation of IDPs operates together with “Odesa Dvoryk” (Odesa yard) hotel. 100 people can find shelter at the same time. They can rest, get legal or medical aid, restore documents. During this center`s work, 300 people passed through it and found a safe future for themselves,” Oleh Mykhaylyk said.

As the volunteer added, on average people stay in the center for 5-10 days. This time is enough for them to rest and decide whether to stay in Odesa, go to other Ukrainian cities or go abroad.
