Vice Prime Minister Iryna Vereshchuk took part in a meeting of the Coordination Center for Civilian Support under the Kyiv Regional Military Administration.


The centers’ work focuses on social protection issues, including housing and employment assistance, psychosocial, humanitarian, medical, and legal assistance.

Such centers are a tool for interaction between local communities, the central government, and international and non-governmental organizations.  They coordinate providing comprehensive assistance to internally displaced persons, veterans, and other categories of citizens affected by russian aggression.


For example, in the Lviv region, 44 international organizations coordinated in such a center to provide psychological assistance and rehabilitation.


“We must develop a coordination mechanism and respond promptly to challenges. Then we can help everyone affected by the war,” emphasized Iryna Vereshchuk.


Currently, 24 regional coordination centers exist throughout Ukraine.


We remind you that the Coordination Centers for Civilian Support have been created as part of the initiative of First Lady Olena Zelenska to implement the All-Ukrainian mental health program.
