What are they doing?

From July 23, the following works are performed:

  • OSP shields are installed for protection on the windows and doors of four city museums;

  • strengthen the floor and roof, pack the ceramics collection of the Odessa House of Scientists;

  • create an external aid fund in order to be able to quickly respond to the rapidly changing situation.

"Odesa is a pearl of Ukraine's rich cultural heritage. The Russian attack on the historic center of the city is shameful. The EU is confident that the quick response of the ALIPH Foundation in providing support in the assessment, sequencing of activities and stabilization of cultural heritage sites and cooperation with local experts and partners for the effective implementation of projects is an effective method of protecting heritage that is under attack", – said Peter Wagner, the head of the Service of Foreign Policy Instruments of the European Commission.
