But the more people come to the city, the more attention and help they need. Local authorities and volunteers work hard every day to ensure that internally displaced persons do not need anything. However, this work has no standardized schedule or weekends, and consists of only overdue deadlines, so help in providing assistance is always needed.
Due to its geographical location – between the three fronts – the Dnipro and the region became a humanitarian transit hub. During the two months of the war, it became clear that our region is an excellent example of high-quality coordinated coordination and cooperation with migrants. All this is due not only to the representatives of law enforcement agencies and the authorities, but also to ordinary people who make a huge amount of efforts to achieve such high results.
According to various estimates, an average of about 200-250 migrants pass through the Dnieper every day. Most of them are fleeing Slovyansk, Lysychansk and Pokrovsk. However, in cases of intensification of hostilities (eg a missile strike on the Kramatorsk railway station or the capture of the Zaporizhzhya nuclear power plant), their number increases sharply.
As of mid-April, more than 60,000 IDPs had been registered in the Dnieper. It is difficult to say the exact number, as not all of them are officially registered. Some people stay in the Dnieper for a long time, and some – only for a few days. Those who have the financial means to rent an apartment, come in whole companies. Everyone else – after a few days, regaining consciousness and receiving personal hygiene items and clothing, move on.
Due to the large influx of people, there is sometimes a shortage of some goods. The city authorities report that the Dnieper needs food the most (non-perishable, which can be saved as a strategic reserve “just in case") and medicines (for the treatment of oncology, diabetes, etc.). However, the greatest demand is for so-called “medical iron". These are Ilizarov’s devices and everything that is used in surgery after mine injuries.

The head of the Ukrainian Association of Outpatients, Artem Svodkovsky, called on all concerned to provide assistance to the Dnieper organizations that care for migrants, the military and all others affected by this terrible war.
According to the AAM chairman, a lot depends on support in the rear. He calls on all those who are currently in the Dnieper to unite for a single good cause, and all those who are not in the city to help those who can.
To support its activities, the Association of Outpatient Medicine accepts donations. Anyone can make a donation in euros, US dollars and hryvnia to one of the bank accounts, all details can be found at the link – Donation – Асоціація Амулаторної Медицини
