South Ukrainian Humanitarian Hub – Izmail State University of Humanities

South Ukrainian Humanitarian Hub

From the first days of the war, the administration of the Izmail State University of Humanities (ISUH) organized the work of the South Ukrainian Humanitarian Hub, which operates on the basis of our two dormitories.

The unique geographical location of Izmail and the safe situation contribute to the systematic provision of the necessary consulting and humanitarian support for potential refugees from Ukraine who transit to Moldova and Romania. We organized the provision of free accommodation, food and psychological, social, legal support for temporarily displaced persons as a result of the Russian-Ukrainian war.


They are residents of the Kyiv region, Lisichansk, Mariupol, Mykolaiv, Stakhanov, Kharkiv, Kherson. We also have an opportunity to travel to the areas of active military actions to evacuate most vulnerable civilians to Izmail and host them in ISUH’s two dormitories. Thus, during last months, we hosted 498 refugees (mostly single mothers with children including orphans whose parents had their paternal right revoked) in ISUH’s two dormitories. We expect many more refugees to flee to Izmail who would need our free help and accommodation as the military actions in south Ukraine have now intensified.
