From February 24, 2022, more than 600 thousand people were evacuated to the city from Donetska, Luhanska, Kharkivska, Khersonska oblasts and settlements of the temporarily occupied territories of Zaporizhzhia oblast.

One of the programs to help such families is the Save the children voucher program for support of internally displaced persons. It is sent to support children who, together with their families, were forced to move to a safer place of residence due to the war. Vouchers make it possible to purchase essential products for a certain amount, that is, what is most important to the family at the moment.

Also, volunteers of Zaporizhzhia regional organization of Ukrainian Red Cross regularly provide IDPs with food and hygiene kits, conduct psychosocial support activities. Caring townspeople who bake bread with their own hands and, together with volunteers, deliver it to the places where IDPs live, where it is most needed, join in helping.
