John and his team witnessed the thousands of Ukrainian mothers and children flooding into western Ukraine. He established www.MoveUkraine.org in response to the urgent need to get these people off the floors in railway stations, churches, and village halls. Since September 2022 MoveUkraine has opened 11 sites and provided accommodations for more than 500 Internally displaced persons (IDPs).

MoveUkraine is implementing 3 ongoing projects and 5+ projects in the pipeline to accommodate over 1000 IDPs, raised over $2 mil from private donors to finance its activity.

The primary area of activity is in Western Ukraine, specifically in the Ivano-Frankivsk and Lviv oblasts, which are considered relatively safe regions with significant numbers of IDPs. MoveUkraine will be breaking ground soon to build from scratch a social housing apartment complex in Ivano-Frankivsk.
