Based on assessed needs, UNHCR whishes to improve its support to refugees and asylum seekers living in urban and rural areas of Odesa oblast through a social assistance project that effectively addresses and reduces vulnerabilities of the identified communities, in line with UNHCR strategic priorities.

Activities

Following activities are envisioned within the Project:

  • Support to access primary health care services;
  • Material support and counselling to the vulnerable persons of concern;
  • Social and psychological counselling for refugees and asylum seekers with psychosocial needs;
  • Support to access education and learning for children and adults;
  • Assistance with integration in Ukraine, including provision of language classes and computer literacy;
  • Support community groups in building their capacities to address their protection risks.
