In 2020, the Charitable Fund “Right to Protection” (R2P) focused not only on the provision of free legal aid to the internally displaced population, stateless, refugees, and victims of the hostilities but also on disaster risk reduction in eastern Ukraine and on the environmental issues, which are particularly relevant in today’s context. R2P started cooperation with the Amalgamated Territorial Communities (ATCs) and civil-military administrations (CMAs).
Our colleagues actively worked with the ATCs, CMAs, and local government representatives to increase their capacity, facilitate citizens’ access to administrative social services, and jointly develop housing solutions for IDPs. In 2020 some of the very important legislative acts came into force, such as the Resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine № 767 on the compensation for destroyed or damaged housing. COVID-19 is still spreading around the world. At the same time, our colleagues have been actively working to minimize the impact of numerous lockdowns for our beneficiaries and to continue to provide free legal consultations in an online format.
