Creation of a chat bot to help children in emergency situations

The war started by Russia is taking hundreds of civilian lives. Children are often left without parents or lost during evacuation. Their parents die defending Ukraine.

Together with UNICEF, the Office of the President of Ukraine and the Ministry of Social Policy created a chat bot to help children in emergency situations during wartime:

The war can separate parents from children, put families in crisis. As adults, we must do everything in our power to help. If your family is willing to provide temporary refuge for a child; if you know of international organizations that are willing to host Ukrainian children; if you have any other questions regarding children — you can access the hotline.

Because of the war, children can end up far away from their parents and find themselves in difficult circumstances. Our common mission is to help them.





The National Bank of Ukraine

The USAID Technical Assistance to Agricultural Lending in Ukraine (CEP) Project, implemented by the World Credit Union Council (WOCCU), has actively participated in the actions of the National Bank for the Support of Credit Unions of Ukraine.

USAID allowed the United Credit Unions of Ukraine to use the funds previously provided by the project to develop agricultural lending to provide liquidity. This will allow you to quickly return the savings of some depositors.

WOCCU and the CEP Project plan to create an international platform that will accumulate financial and technological resources to restore the activities of credit unions in Ukraine. Under the auspices of the WOCCU and the CEP Project, a dialogue is being initiated with institutions involved in social lending and microbusiness financing.

In addition, WOCCU, credit unions of Canada, the United States, Poland and Lithuania are ready to provide financial support to Ukrainian credit unions for the rapid resumption of their activities. Thus, from the first days of the war, credit unions of the United States and Canada, established by Ukrainian communities, have already provided $ 1 million in support of Ukraine.
