Help for Ukraine. Support now the people on the ground and in Switzerland

Russia is continuing its attack on Ukraine. The civilian population is now being targeted in this gruesome war. Millions of people are still holding out in the war zone, almost seven million have already fled into neighbouring countries. HEKS/EPER is now providing humanitarian aid worth 10 million Swiss francs to assist people in Ukraine, and refugees both in neighbouring countries and in Switzerland.

In Ukraine: providing protection, alleviating hardship

From Odessa, HEKS/EPER has established supply lines to alleviate the plight of the people in the cities and regions in the south and east of the country that are being hit especially hard by the war. HEKS/EPER is also supporting its long-standing partners in Transcarpathia in their work – that of caring for the elderly and for people with disabilities who are neither able nor willing to leave the country, and of receiving internally displaced people seeking shelter there.




In neighbouring countries: receiving and providing for refugees

HEKS/EPER is also on the ground in the neighbouring countries of Romania, Hungary, the Czech Republic, and now also in Moldova, where it is assisting its partner organizations in welcoming refugees, providing them with the most essential items, with psychological help, and is organizing accommodation for those wishing to stay in the region.

In Switzerland: Offering protection and fostering integration

In Switzerland, HEKS/EPER assists Ukrainian refugees arriving at the two federal asylum centres in Altstätten (SG) and Basel in submitting their applications for protection status, and takes charge of placing them with volunteer host families. HEKS/EPER assists Ukrainians during their arrival in Switzerland and in building a new life here, by offering support in everyday life, language courses and professional integration programmes.
