Thanks to funds for international cooperation amounting to EUR 73,400 made available by the Friuli Venezia Giulia Autonomous Region and administered by the CEI-Executive Secretariat, the AVSI Foundation will contribute to alleviating the humanitarian emergency in Ukraine.
In particular, in collaboration with the NGO EMMAUS based in Kharkiv, AVSI will use the funds to purchase basic necessities and will distribute them to at least 400 beneficiaries in the territories of Kharkiv, Sumy and Poltava. The activity will be carried out until November 2022.
Fondazione AVSI is an Italian no-profit organisation based in Milan and Cesena. It has been working in Ukraine since 2014, when the conflict in Donbass broke out, to rebuild the social fabric. In these years, it has created foster homes and implemented actions to accompany young people and people with disabilities to independent living, in collaboration with the Emmaus association of Kharkiv. Since February 24, 2022 - when the war broke out - AVSI immediately took action in the countries of arrival of refugees, in Poland, Romania, Moldova, Italy, and in Ukraine itself, in partnership with local CSOs and autorities.
