As of December this year, there are more than 20.6 thousand of them. Since February 2022, this number has increased by 74%, according to the platform Opendatabot.
Among the registered companies, there are new ones as well as those that have recently received official status.
The significant increase is explained by the fact that since the beginning of the war, civil society has mobilized to help the armed forces and civilians.
Charities also seek official status to have more opportunities. This includes the right to open bank accounts, raise funds, work with volunteers, sign contracts for volunteer activities, issue volunteer certificates, etc.
As part of the humanitarian response, the Ministry of Reintegration works closely with many charitable organizations.
They provide advocacy and social protection for IDPs, humanitarian, legal, and psychological assistance, evacuation, temporary shelter for IDPs, counseling for military families, and support for veterans.
