Support Habitat for Humanity's response

Habitat for Humanity leaders in Hungary, Poland, Romania, and Slovakia are contingency planning in the event large numbers of people are forced out of their communities in Ukraine and into neighboring countries. In the meantime, Habitat for Humanity is distributing hotel vouchers to families fleeing the violence in Ukraine. Join us in the effort to help displaced refugees.

Hotel vouchers are secured through Habitat’s partnership with Ibis hotels and allow refugees arriving in Romania to stay five nights for free in one of five company hotels. Refugees are also given access to transportation to the hotels. The initial voucher distributions near the Ukrainian border came as the crises reached a somber milestone: more than 1 million refugees have now been forced from their homes and out of Ukraine, according to the UN refugee agency. Up to 4 million people could be displaced if the situation deteriorates further, the UN says, creating Europe’s largest refugee crisis of this century.
