Operation Dove in Ukraine - 2024

Since March 2022 Operation Dove has been present in Ukraine, first in Lviv, Kiev and Odessa, currently in Mykolaïv and Kherson. Supporting the presence of Operation Dove volunteers means not leaving the most fragile people in conflict-affected territories alone and concretely supporting the efforts of those who want to respond to violence with solidarity.

Operation Dove in Ukraine - 2024

Since March 2022 Operation Dove has been present in Ukraine, first in Lviv, Kiev and Odessa, currently in Mykolaïv and Kherson. Supporting the presence of Operation Dove volunteers means not leaving the most fragile people in conflict-affected territories alone and concretely supporting the efforts of those who want to respond to violence with solidarity.

Operation Dove has been present in Ukraine since March 2022.
After an initial intervention in the cities of Lviv, Kiev, and Odessa, and after participating in the implementation of international caravans, it opened a stable presence: currently, volunteers from Operation Dove live and work in a reception center in Mykolaïv and travel, increasingly permanently, to the city of Kherson.

Mykolaïv, in the south of the country, 140 km from Odessa, is a few dozen km from the fighting front. Nearly half of the civilian population has abandoned the city, which is still exposed to shelling that has caused numerous deaths and destruction of buildings.
Those left behind are the most vulnerable, mainly the elderly and disabled, who need help to survive.
Volunteers from Operation Dove live with them in a shelter, collaborate in the distribution of basic necessities (drinking water...) and share the underground shelter during the shelling.
Together with local volunteers, they go to the villages closest to the front line to deliver much-needed food aid and medical supplies.

Since November 2022, the front line has moved to the city of Kherson, specifically to the Dniepr River that runs through it. Of the people who initially lived in the city, about 120,000, there are now fewer than 20,000 left. Every day, several times a day, the city is being shelled with missiles, artillery shells and incendiary drones.
Volunteers from Operation Dove have been living in Kherson, hosted by the local evangelical church/community, since June 2023, supporting the civilian population with humanitarian goods, helping to clean up homes flooded by the flood following the destruction of the Nova Kachovka dam, and helping to rebuild Dom Kulturi, a worship and aid distribution center almost completely destroyed in July 2023 by incendiary drones.

Being physically close to the inhabitants of the territories affected by the conflict, not abandoning them at a very hard time in their lives; creating and maintaining human relations between the Ukrainian people and the international community; concretely supporting the efforts of those who want to respond with solidarity to the violence and maintaining moments of creativity, sociability and hope for Ukrainian youth... these are the main goals of Operation Dove in Ukraine and that is why it is very important to support the international presence of Operation Dove volunteers in Mykolaïv and Kherson.
