The largest refugee crisis in the world in the 21st century was caused by the invasion of Russian troops into Ukraine on February 24, 2022. More than 13.1 million people were forced to flee Ukraine to other countries. Another 8 million people became internally displaced persons. Millions of people were left without a roof over their heads, jobs, and means of living. Therefore, the number of those in need has increased significantly. According to the press service of the regional military administration, there are 73,800 internally displaced people in the Zhytomyr region. Our city also actively accepts refugees from the east of Ukraine and does everything possible to help them. As of today, 120 refugees receive free lunches at our soupkitchens. Some people come for lunches themselves, and for those who do not have such an opportunity, our volunteers deliver lunches to their place of residence.
