In response to the war in Ukraine, the Fondation de Luxembourg has launched an emergency aid initiative for victims. The Ukraine Solidarity Foundation was created to direct urgent humanitarian aid to victims of the ongoing violence in Ukraine. Actions supported will be centered on providing aid to victims in Ukraine and neighboring areas, as well as initiatives for welcoming refugees in Luxembourg.
The website of the European Migration Network in Luxembourg has all the official information you need, including fellowship programs for students and researchers, school enrollment, housing, working possibilities and helpful phone numbers to supporting institutions.
Specific procedures have been set up to welcome and assist people fleeing the war in Ukraine, including those people that have already arrived in Luxembourg. Detailed information about registration, working permission, medical insurance or accommodation provides the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs.
Luxembourg’s government has set up an initial reception centre for anyone fleeing the war in Ukraine. The emergency accommodation structure in Luxembourg-Kirchberg (“SHUK” for short) is open 24/7. SHUK will provide accommodation, meals, and the initial information necessary for your stay in Luxembourg.
The department of the Ministry of Education, Children and Youth, can give you all the necessary information about the Luxembourgish school system. They help you find the right class and school that fit your child’s skills and needs. The main focus of the education provision for Ukrainian refugee pupils will be on international public schools. A special hotline has been also established (in Ukrainian and English).
