The war in Ukraine is still going on, so ECOM continues to provide support to ECOM members and partners from Ukraine, as well as to all members of the community and Ukrainians who need it.

What we have managed to do and what activities are still ongoing:

  • We conducted a needs assessment of ECOM members from Ukraine, processed 21 requests from them and were able to support requests for humanitarian aid and funds for urgent relocation within the country;
  • Supported two requests to organize temporary shelters for gays and trans* people in Ukraine, which are now functioning in the country;
  • Provided funding to Gender Zed and Gender Stream organizations providing urgent assistance for LGBT Ukrainians;
  • Provided assistance to organizations GenderDoc-M in Moldova and Hatter in Hungary, which help LGBT refugees arriving in their countries with temporary asylum or adaptation in the country;
  • Assisted the work of organizations Insight and Cohort, which provide individual assistance for trans* people in Ukraine;
  • Continue to provide individual humanitarian assistance for all members of the LGBT community from Ukraine. To date, 204 requests for humanitarian assistance have been processed. Of these, 86% of requests were for covering food expenses, 57% for hygiene products, 51% for medicine or health services, 48% for temporary housing and 43% for clothing.
91% of requests included several items at once. We have already responded to 117 requests for a total amount of 341,413.61 UAH.
