Nova Ukraine supports a large group of volunteers in Kharkiv called Station Kharkiv that provides help to refugees from the Crimea, Donetsk and Luhansk regions.
Volunteers from this group have been a true support for numerous refugees arriving in Kharkiv, amid lack of any significant support from Kharkiv City officials. They meet people at the station, feed them, figure out living arrangementsespecially for families with small children, help with purchasing tickets to other cities in Ukraine, distribute clothes to people who left their homes with only summer things, provide medications for sick, injured and handicapped. They work with people who are frequently on the verge of a nervous breakdown. And they are always friendly and responsive.
Two months ago Station Kharkiv helped 50 families a day. However as the war continues to rage on, the flow of refugees has been increasing and now they help 200-300 families daily. Right now a lot of people are arriving from Mariupol on an additional direct train to Kharkiv. Station Kharkiv volunteers also raise funds to deliver food and medications to the zone of a military conflict. Kids in the ATO zone frequently get sick because they have to stay in the basements for long periods of time during fighting.
