Project Activities

ASB has been implementing humanitarian interventions in Ukraine since 2014. During 2014-2018, the project activities for internally displaced persons were implemented in close cooperation with ASB’s local partner, Samaritan Union of Ukraine (SSU). In 2018-2019, in partnership with ACTED and SSU, ASB provided humanitarian assistance to conflict-affected populations in the 5-kilometer zone along the ‘contact line’ (government-controlled areas of Luhansk and Donetsk oblasts). Since June 2019, ASB implements humanitarian activities in the conflict zone both directly and through its local partner, SSU. The project activities are funded by the Federal Foreign Office of the Federal Republic of Germany.
