Ireland continues to allocate significant funds for housing for Ukrainian refugees. Investments in the construction of modular houses alone amounted to 83 million euros.

Modular housing is being built in seven locations, with some already housing over 1000 Ukrainians, according to bnnbreaking.com.

The Irish government has spent substantial amounts of money to support Ukrainian refugees. Since the beginning of the war, the country has issued 104 thousand temporary protection orders. The government has spent approximately 2 billion euros on supporting Ukrainians living in the country.

At the same time, modular housing for emergency shelter for those fleeing the war is being built in 7 locations in Ireland. Nearly 83 million euros have been allocated for modular houses.

The Department of Children, Equality, Disability, Integration, and Youth has announced that each block, designed to accommodate four people, costs 145,000 euros, excluding expenses for land acquisition and outfitting. By the end of 2023, 1240 residents had been settled in 310 new modular houses.

The modular housing programme includes additional facilities in Lucan (132 modular houses), Ballinasloe (64), and Rathgoggan (66), which are being developed to accommodate a larger number of refugees.

Meanwhile, the government's assistance includes both payments and opportunities for employment in various sectors. Refugees have access to educational, medical, and social services, with thousands receiving medical cards and being enrolled in schools.

Furthermore, the employment of 35,000 Ukrainian refugees contributes to the development of the Irish economy, particularly in sectors experiencing labor shortages. Many people have found jobs in accommodation and food sectors.
