  • Period: June 2023 - April 2024
  • Donor: Aktion Deutschland Hilft, Help — Hilfe zur Selbsthilfe
  • Budget: 500,000.00 €
  • Region: Southern Ukraine
  • Target group: Flood-affected people

Due to the dam failure, many settlements in Kherson Oblast were submerged, and parts of the Dnipro, Kherson, and Zaporizhzhia regions were left without a centralized water supply. Such situations require a rapid response, as it is necessary to quickly provide the affected population with everything they need to overcome the consequences.

During the project, it was implemented:

  • As a part of the rapid response, 715 beneficiaries from the Kherson region received multipurpose cash assistance. 30 payments are underway.
  • Monitoring visits were made to communities in the Dinpro region to assess the impact of the floods.
  • 24 pumps, necessary for drainage and pumping of sewage from flooded streets and homes of about 13 thousand residents, were handed over to Dar’ivka, Chornobaiivka, and Tiahynka territorial communities.
  • 3712 water purification tablets we have delivered to the Bilozerska, Dar’ivka, Kalynivka, Nova Kakhovka, Tiahynka, Kherson, and Chornobaivka territorial communities.
  • 6600 bottles of drinking water were provided to 3 communities in Kherson region.
