President of Ukraine Zelensky met with the Director General of the International Organization for Migration (IOM), Amy Pope, who is visiting Ukraine these days.

The Head of State thanked the Director General for her visit, which began in Mykolaiv and Odessa, and congratulated her on her recent assumption of office.

"We are grateful to IOM for helping Ukrainian families. Especially with housing. This is a top priority for those who have lost part of their lives to the war. We are counting on your continued support," said Volodymyr Zelensky.

The Ukrainian President praised IOM's assistance to communities affected by the Russian occupiers' destruction of the Kakhovka hydroelectric dam, reconstruction of housing for IDPs and support for establishing "Points of Invincibility" in various regions of Ukraine.

During the meeting, the parties discussed the main activities of the International Organization for Migration in Ukraine, in particular, helping IDPs to find jobs and supporting their mental health.
