  • The Lviv Emergency Response Office was set up a few days after the start of the war, and coordinates HIA’s humanitarian operations in Ukraine. Its warehouse and logistics base play an instrumental role in the effort to provide relief to local partners even further east.

Believing in the power of community, HIA also to provide flexible cash grants to groups and congregations coping with the destructions caused by the war.
  • In Hungary, HIA’s efforts are focused on offering both short- and long-term accommodation to the refugees arriving. Institutions in Debrecen, Miskolc and Budapest host refugee families in need and support them with food, shelter and psychosocial support.
