A reintegration project for internally displaced people in Ukraine



Every evacuation poses a grave risk to life. Venturing into any of the besieged cities or suburbs carries the potential for catastrophic outcomes. Nevertheless, we are always ready to take on this work.

What is harder for Base UA, however, is when people don’t want to be evacuated – because they don’t know where to go.
Our commitment extends beyond immediate aid; we aspire to assist in the long term. Hence, we’ve made the decision to purchase houses, refurbish them, and allocate them to families grappling with existence under perpetual threat.

Many people in the embattled territories of Ukraine convey their inability to afford a new residence in a secure location.

Consequently, they opt to remain in the war-torn zones, or worse: we’ve witnessed far too often that people had to return after perilous escapes due to financial constraints. The notion that financial considerations force individuals into such perilous choices is intolerable to us.

Approximately 12,000,000 individuals have fled their homes, communities, aspirations, and livelihoods – half of whom are internally displaced. Only a fraction have found refuge with relatives or possess the means for a fresh start. The majority reside in makeshift shelters, often cramming entire families into a single room, with minimal prospects for betterment.

As a small organization, Base UA prioritizes the maximization of our scant resources’ efficiency. Amidst our diverse endeavors – from frontline evacuations to creative rehabilitation camps for children – Project REBASE stands out with its unparalleled impact. A contribution of 10,000 euros enables a family of five to eight individuals to rebuild their lives with dignity and security, facilitating their reintegration into society. We identify and procure suitable housing, furnish families with essentials, and offer legal and material support during the crucial initial phase.

Our objective for 2024 is to acquire and prepare 100 residences for families. This endeavor wouldn’t solely benefit the recipients; it would also invigorate villages that have experienced depopulation in recent decades, enriching them economically, culturally, and demographically.
