Refurbishment and Material Supply

Cluster members are actively engaged in the transformation and revitalization of vacant public buildings, converting them into emergency shelters for Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs). An exemplary project within this cluster is the CO-HATY initiative by the Ukrainian NGO Metalab in Ivano-Frankivsk. This remarkable endeavor closely collaborates with local governments and an extensive network of agencies, successfully offering shelter to over 1300 individuals through the revitalization of six structures. Additionally, organisations like Re-Win contribute by dispatching refurbished materials, especially windows, from renovation projects to support Ukraine. The ongoing collaboration within this cluster aspires to evolve beyond providing emergency housing for IDPs into establishing an innovative and affordable long-term residency housing initiative.
