Free transportation on Austrian railways (ÖBB)
"Ukrainians who are fleeing from war can use @unsereoebb trains in #Austria without a ticket. In times like this, it is our responsibility to help fast and unbuerocraticly. And that is exactly what we are doing. 🇺🇦 #Ukraine"
Free transportation in Vienna
People who have fled Ukraine can use the entire Wiener Linien network without a ticket between March 1st and March 15th. In times like these, we see it as our responsibility to provide quick and unbureaucratic help.
Travel documents will be enough proof in the event of a ticket check. Furthermore, Wiener Linien is examining long-term support offers for those affected.
Люди, які залишили Україну як біженці, можуть користуватися в період з 1-го по 15-те березня мережею громадського транспорту у Відні (метро, трамвай, автобус) безкоштовно. У такі часи ми вважаємо своїм обов’язком надати швидку та небюрократичну допомогу. Достатнім підтвердженням у разі перевірки квитка буде закордонний паспорт/проїзний документ. Крім того, розглядається довгострокова допомога для постраждалих.
The initiators - Beacon Invest, Bondi Consult, EHL , goreeo Werbeagentur, Hawlik Gerginski, Immobilien Redaktion, KE Wohnimmobilien, Kommunikation Unteregger, REMAX Austria, Simacek, Webentwicklung Gerhard Popp, WISAG Service Holding Austria, Zeiger Immobilien Marketing - are calling on people to provide temporary empty rooms for refugees from Ukraine.
In this way, anyone and everyone can provide help quickly and without bureaucracy. If every major real estate company in Austria decides to provide ONE apartment, we can offer refuge to up to 5,000 people. However, we are not only appealing to companies, but are also grateful for any help from private individuals.
Let's stick together and help people who urgently need our help right now!

Austrian Federal Agency for Reception and Support Services (BBU)
No one can currently estimate how many people will seek refuge in Austria as a result of the Russian attack on Ukraine. However, the BBU is making arrangements in close coordination with the Ministry of the Interior, as well as with the federal states and civil society organizations, to create emergency capacities for people from Ukraine. In addition, we are also currently examining measures to help Ukraine's immediate neighbors provide for refugees from Ukraine through neighborhood assistance.
At the same time, we perceive that there are great signals of willingness for neighborhood assistance among the Austrian population. In close coordination with the Ministry of the Interior and the federal provinces, we are therefore taking care of the coordination of neighborhood offers from civil society. So if you have a vacant property or premises and would like to make them available at short notice for people who have fled Ukraine, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
For the area of neighborhood assistance and thus for the care of Ukrainian citizens in need of help and protection, we will also master this difficult and humanitarian urgent task together.

Escalation of the crisis in Ukraine
7.5 million children have been affected by the escalation of the conflict in Ukraine.
The fighting has destroyed many buildings, such as schools, and disrupted water supplies in some regions. Many families have lost their homes. Hundreds of thousands of people are on the run. Half of them are children.
While the fighting continues, we are supporting children and their families affected by the conflict. UNICEF not only delivers relief supplies to the affected areas, but also provides mobile drop-in centers for families on the run. Information, psychosocial support, playgrounds for young children and breastfeeding facilities for mothers are available there.
The families and children in Ukraine need us now!
