A new service for homeless people has been opened at Kyiv station in Ukraine’s capital city where every night around 60-90 people who have overcome temporary challenges in their lives are assisted.
A warming room has been adapted to offer them a place to sleep away from the cold, hot meals and drinks are also provided by a local cafe that cooks nutritious, home-made dinners.
Depaul Ukraine also offers them sandwiches and tea/coffee as well as a medical first aid. Additional services include employment advice and there’s plans to offer legal advice in the future.
Depaul Ukraine staff are helping each night doing waking hours and accompanying the homeless to show them how to use the premises.
This warming room managed by Depaul Ukraine has already helped more than 300 people thanks to the collaboration of other organisations like Caritas and the support of the Sisters of the Miraculous Medal, the Daughters of Charity and the Vincentian Fathers
