Emergency Grant Aid for Winterization Response and Provision of Housing to Vulnerable People of Ukraine (through the United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS))
On December 13th, the Government of Japan decided to extend an Emergency Grant Aid of approximately 10.649 million US dollars as support for winterization assistance in electric power sector and rehabilitation of damaged houses.
1. The Government of Japan will implement the aid for Ukraine through the United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS) with provision of generators and rehabilitation of damaged houses.
2. The large-scale blackout has occurred in various areas of Ukraine caused by destruction of a large part of energy infrastructure facilities by Russia’s attacks. While the winter gets colder and days get shorter every day in Ukraine, the aid has significant importance as winterization support for those who cannot use heating facilities and lighting equipment due to the blackout and those who lost their houses.
3. The Government of Japan will continue to provide support for and stand by the people of Ukraine who are facing hardship, in collaboration with the international community, including the G7 members.
