PROVIDE ADEQUATE HOUSING
IN UKRAINE FOR THE
VICTIMS OF WAR
There still are relatively safe areas in Ukraine.
Far away from the war zone, without any military facilities nor big infrastructure. Not a single missile has landed there during the entire war.
These are the areas in the western part of Ukraine.
Since the start of the war in February 2022, it has been the primary destination for the first wave of refugees from the Eastern Ukraine.
From Truskavets to the active
over 1,000 km
It is only 50 km
from Truskavets to the Polish border
Several municipalities are willing to provide land plots to build neighborhoods for the refugees trying to return to Ukraine.
Municipalities and state authorities are ready to provide full assistance in obtaining all necessary permits.
There exist modern and ecological technical solutions to construct wooden houses within 4-5 months.
Quick construction - several times shorter than if using other materials;
Longevity - the service life of buildings is more than 100 years;
Low cost of construction;
Maximum interior space - up to 10% of the living space is saved due to the lower thermal conductivity of wood;
Environmentally friendly - up to 70% reduction of CO emissions during production compared to concrete and steel.
The housing estates are made on a turnkey basis, i.e. they are completely ready to live in.
Organic vegetable growing
in the greenhouses.
Association RETURN offers the possibility to the families who will reside in the main building to grow their vegetables in the greenhouses. These will be located close to the house. Each greenhouse will produce vegetables for four people throughout the year. We want to promote permaculture techniques to be applied in the greenhouses for a sustainable use of the soil. Compost bins will be made available to each family. The choice of vegetables can be made collectively or separately by each family. The greenhouses offer the possibility of exchanging harvested vegetables in an ecovillage atmosphere.
