Humanitarian aid for Ukrainian refugees in neighboring countries
With a total amount of 500,000 Swiss francs, the City of Zurich supports refugee reception and assistance in neighboring countries of the Ukraine by contributing to the humanitarian aid programs for the Ukraine maintained by the national charitable collection organization as well as the four largest Swiss relief organizations. The main focus of the aid is on emergency assistance for the refugees at the borders of Ukraine with the neighboring countries Romania, Hungary, Moldova, Slovakia and Poland. The Zurich City Council will consider further financial contributions to humanitarian assistance for the Ukraine in 2022.
The funded relief organizations have to submit an operational and financial report to the City of Zurich that will allow to assess the results and impact of the provided humanitarian aid based on the initial proposals and budgets of the relief organizations.
