On the first day of the Russian occupation of the peninsula, activists Tamila Tasheva, Sevgil Musayeva and Alim Aliyev created the Crimea SOS Facebook page to provide up-to-date, verified information about the situation in Crimea. Subsequently, they began helping IDPs not only from Crimea, but also from Donbas, where military actions are underway.The organization developed rapidly, having become a UN partner in Ukraine in refugee affairs and established offices in Kyiv, Kherson and Lviv. Today, Crimea SOS provides emergency humanitarian, legal and psychological assistance to internally displaced persons and is advocating the return of Crimea to Ukraine. In the course of two years of its existence, Crimea SOS has provided support to more than 200 thousand people.
