Europe Build Europe supports refugees and appeals to European Commission

For Ukraine
Polski Związek Firm Deweloperskich (PZFD) and Build Europe, the organisation representing the national federations of European developers and homebuilders, delivered more than 500 beds in Poland to support Ukrainian refugees, and also provided direct financial support to humanitarian organisations operating on the Ukrainian border in Romania and Moldova.

Following the Russian invasion of Ukraine, PZFD, Build Europe, and the Swiss federation of developers and constructors (SBV) put in place a series of collective actions to offer Ukrainian refugees financial aid, solidarity, supplies, and comfortable temporary living arrangements. These initiatives are the result of an unprecedented joint effort designed to demonstrate the commitment of European developers towards the Ukrainian refugees hosted and sheltered in the EU.

In addition to these measures, PZFD and Build Europe sent a letter to the President of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, warning that – while the EU urgently needs to develop temporary housing solutions – the current Ukrainian refugee crisis has brought to the surface a problem that has been plaguing Europe for many years: the lack of housing supply. For this reason, Build Europe called on the European Commission to encourage Member States to facilitate the construction of provisional housing solutions, but also to initiate as soon as possible the development of a sustainable housing supply and of a diversified offer favouring integration, so to prevent the formation of ghettos made of temporary housing.

Furthermore, during a press conference organised at the Marshal Office of Wielkopolska in Poznań, it was announced that the Ukrainian federation of developers has started working together with PZFD to rebuild Ukrainian cities and will soon bring the voice of Ukrainian homebuilders within the European institutions.
