Volunteer front: charitable help for the internally displaced persons (IDP) living in the dormitories of Ostroh Academy
September 21, 2022
Since the beginning of the Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine, a large number of internally displaced persons have been living in the dormitories of Ostroh Academy. There are more than 200 people as at September 20.
The National University of Ostroh Academy has organized a fundraiser for the purchase of household appliances and household goods with the purpose of humanitarian support and provision of domestic needs. Thanks to the efforts of American, Canadian, Ukrainian friends and patrons, more than UAH 200,000 was collected for the needs of IDPs. With these funds, the washing machines used by the IDPs were updated, kettles, microwave ovens, clothes dryers, and other household items and hygiene products were purchased in the hostels of the National University of Ostroh Academy, where IDPs live.
