The IOM Mission in Ukraine invites young people aged 16 to 25 to submit short videos that express their thoughts and ideas on migration, diversity and social inclusion in Ukraine for participating in the national youth video festival PLURAL+ UKRAINE.
As of end of February 2016, IOM has assisted over 100,000 vulnerable internally displaced persons and conflict-affected people in 21 regions of Ukraine. They were provided with cash assistance, medicine, hygiene items, clothes and shoes, household items, legal counselling and psychological support, as well as livelihood support.
The money transferred back home by Ukrainians working abroad is higher than all funds foreign companies invest in the country and international donors contribute to development combined.
Several hundreds of Ukrainians preparing to move to Canada have benefited from free pre-departure orientation sessions conducted by IOM Ukraine at the request of the Government of Canada since spring 2015.
Art-works presented in the Moved On! project display artistic exploration of the migration experience. The exhibition is open for visitors at Shcherbenko Art Centre, Mykhailivska Street, 22-V,
from 22 December 2015 till 16 January 2016.
