The United Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR) and its partners, in cooperation with the Government of Ukraine, regional, and local authorities, have repaired over 27,500 homes. This information is available on the organization’s website.

The house repair program enables Ukrainians to remain in their homes or return to them after being displaced within Ukraine or as a refugee abroad.

Reconstruction work was carried out in Kyiv, Mykolaiv, Chernihiv, Sumy, and Kharkiv regions. The focus was primarily on repairing private homes and multi-story buildings.

UNHCR hires Ukrainian contractors to perform repairs and provides construction materials or cash assistance to cover the cost of repairs and materials.

The work can involve restoring the roof, replacing windows and doors, insulating the house, and making major repairs to houses.

On January 23, a delegation consisting of UN High Commissioner for Refugees Filippo Grandi, Ambassador of Japan to Ukraine Matsuda Kuninori, and Head of the Office of the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Humanitarian Aid and Civil Protection Claudia Amaral visited Kyiv region to review the results of the house repair program.
