On November 13th, a free evacuation from Odesa to the border with Moldova was organized by ADRA Ukraine as part of the LEAP project supported by the Canadian Government. The assistance was provided to 23 people from vulnerable populations, including IDPs, mothers with children, single mothers, pregnant women, elderly people, people with disabilities, and people in need of evacuation due to the medical reasons. The evacuation trips were launched on June 19th, 2023. As of today, 622 people have already used this service.
Evacuation transport from Odesa is used not only by Odesa residents, but also by residents of other Ukrainian cities. For example, residents of Kharkiv, Dnipro, Zaporizhzhia, Kherson, Mykolaiv can apply to ADRA Ukraine for free transportation from these cities to Odesa, and then evacuate to other countries. Volunteers from ADRA Ukraine’s partner organizations in Odesa will help with temporary accommodation until the nearest date of departure. From the Ukrainian border, it is possible to leave for Moldova and Romania (in particular, to the cities of Bucharest or Constanta) free of charge. In the above countries, Ukrainians are met by volunteers from other charitable organizations, who provide advice and emergency support. Evacuees with limited mobility can use special door-to-door transfer service.
