What has been happening in Ukraine affects everyone. Councils and communities everywhere are making massive efforts to provide relief.
Many local councils were suddenly given new major responsibilities, from crisis communication to volunteer work, from collecting clothes to finding a place to stay.
Our customers are turning to the Hoplr neighbourhoods to find relief. Local residents, too, have been setting up solidary actions by the hundreds.
2,000 km from here, war is raging. And yet, once again it appears that in times of need, we turn to those closest to us.
In this blog article, we name 9 initiatives from a total of 38 local councils that have posted on Hoplr. By doing so, we hope to encourage more governments to reach out to the local communities during this time of crisis. This way, they don’t only help Ukraine, but unite the neighbourhood around this common goal: providing relief to the countless refugees.

Putting local initiatives in the spotlight
Hoplr is there to reach out to local residents. So make use of it! We are certain our users are eager to contribute. We hope that the above examples from some cities and towns can inspire you to make use of the neighbourhoods’ potential yourself.
More and more Ukrainian refugees are now registering on Hoplr, indicating that they too seek connection with their neighbourhood far from home. We welcome them all.
