70 adults and 22 children currently live in one of the Ivano-Frankivsk shelters for people who had to leave their homes due to the war. Most of these children have lost their homes and have no way to go back. They left their toys, books, friends, usual places for games. Therefore, they need a children’s room, as well as a sports and play space.

Public transport is also an issue in this part of the city, so there is a need for a bicycle parking space, as there are bicycles with no safe place for storage.

Another need is a generator to ensure uninterrupted power supply to the boiler, or rather five pumps that supply hot water to the system.

The shelter residents themselves arranged cleaning in the yard, created a picturesque flower bed and made some furniture from pallets, started sorting and separate removal of sorted waste, hold workshops and film screenings for the children living in the shelter.

A summer terrace and a renovated play room were built by METALAB NGO. Rokada charitable organisation will equip the premises with containers for waste sorting, provide furniture and games for the children's room.

Grant funds provided by Urban Space 100 will be used to equip a children’s room, a sports and play space, and a bicycle parking lot, as well as to purchase a generator.
