Iryna Vereshchuk, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Reintegration of the Temporarily Occupied Territories of Ukraine, today chaired a meeting on the involvement of international donors in cooperation with the Coordination Centres for Civilian Support under the regional military administrations.
The meeting was attended by representatives of the Ministry of Reintegration of the Temporarily Occupied Territories and the regional military administrations, heads of the Coordination Centres, and representatives of international humanitarian organisations such as OCHA, UNHCR, UNICEF, IOM, UNDP and others.
The meeting focused on strengthening the capacity of the Coordination Centres. They provide support and assistance to populations affected by hostilities, including internally displaced persons and war veterans.
At the same time, the issue of informing the population remains relevant. It is important that as many people as possible are made aware of this opportunity and receive the assistance they need, the Deputy Prime Minister stressed.
Coordination between regional centres is also a priority, as it is important to create a platform for sharing experiences and cooperation.
According to international donors, the Coordination Centres have already become effective platforms for providing diverse assistance. They see them as the most effective mechanism for addressing the practical needs of the population.
As a result of the meeting, international donors expressed their support for comprehensive assistance to the Coordination Centres.
“Cooperation between the Coordination Centres and international humanitarian organisations is the key to success. If there is synergy, if there is cooperation, there will be results,” concluded Iryna Vereshchuk.
