Update from Doctors Without Borders, fellow member of neighborhood network De Plantage, about the psychological help that the organization offers people from Mariupol

Thousands of people have fled the violent violence in southeastern Ukraine. From Mariupol they arrive in the city of Zaporizhzhya. Here a shopping center has been converted into a reception center. People can register and receive food, water, social support and medical care. Our team of psychologists works in this reception center and provides psychological services to people who arrive.
