L’viv has embraced IDPs in its arms. Many community initiatives responded to help those in need. As the head of the NGO "Projection of success" and a leader of the "New perspective" funded by the Ukrainian Women's Fund under the project in question, we provided assistance to IDPs to help them launch their own business. Life has seemingly improved as they have a place to live, their favorite place of work but they don’t have any friends at all. Moreover, the local population is not completely aware of the loneliness these people experience.
