72% of the Kharkiv region and the city of Kharkiv are connected to the central heating system. Constant shelling reduces the pace of its recovery, which provokes a dangerous situation for local residents. According to our data, a large number of IDPs from Kharkiv were resettled in small summer houses in communities of Kharkiv Region, which are not suitable for living in winter period (more than 20,000 IDPs are registered in Valkyvsk Region alone). CO «CF «Peaceful Heaven of Kharkiv» and its partners are working on an electric heating project, the purpose of which is to provide vulnerable population groups with alternative types of heating and give them the opportunity to safely survive the difficult winter period.
