The company organized shelters for displaced persons in Kropyvnytskyi, Kyiv, Lviv and Ivano-Frankivsk
The steel trading company AB Metal Group sheltered almost 150 families in shelters in different parts of Ukraine. This is stated in the press release on the company’s Facebook page.
“We are actively continuing the construction of housing for displaced persons on the basis of our branches. After all, we are united by a common goal – to bring victory closer and help Ukrainians fleeing the war. According to the estimates of information agencies, the Russian occupiers have destroyed more than 15 million square meters of housing. Approximately 800,000 Ukrainians were left homeless,” the message says.
As part of the charity project, the company converted office premises into residential apartments, with an area from 20 to 36 square meters. A family of 2 to 5 people can live in the room.
Shelters in Kropyvnytskyi, Kyiv, Lviv and Ivano-Frankivsk have already been occupied. In view of the great need, another shelter was equipped in Ivano-Frankivsk, which has 11 rooms for 40 people. At the end of the year, it is planned to open another shelter for more than 50 people.
First of all, housing is offered to people who have been left without a home, the elderly, families with small children, people from regions where intense hostilities are taking place or from occupied territories. Accommodation is free and will be provided for the entire period of hostilities.
“The war united our society. At the time when the Ukrainian Armed Forces were protecting Ukraine from the enemy, thousands of Ukrainians joined the volunteer movement, helping in the rear. Actively supporting social projects in peacetime, AB Metal Group has been holding the economic and social fronts since the first days of a full-scale war. After all, we are Ukrainians!” the company noted.
