The “Good on Amur” Resettlement Center was established in late February 2022. It all started with the search for a bomb shelter where residents of Dnipro could hide during air raid alerts, which became relevant with the beginning of hostilities in Ukraine. Several residents of the city found a neglected bomb shelter that belonged to the Ukrainian State Geological Survey and had not been used for many years. They opened it and began to equip it for staying in dangerous times. In the building, they had to drain the water that stood there ankle-deep, dry the walls, remove mold and fungus, install electricity, bring in pallets and benches that were arranged as seating areas, stock up on necessary food, water, and medicine supplies (now this shelter will provide refuge during air raid alerts to all those who wish, but overall, it is designed for residents of nearby buildings and can accommodate about 300 people).
A few days after the start of the war, the first refugees from the occupied regions appeared in the city who needed housing, and urgent action was needed to accommodate them and provide necessary assistance. At first, volunteers housed them in their own apartments and with neighbors, but then, when there were already too many people, they turned their attention to the neglected building of the same institute. After talking with its owner, they were able to accommodate the first 50 refugees in the two-story building. The building had not been used for about 10 years and was in a terrible condition. Activist volunteers, with the help of residents of neighboring buildings, carried out urgent repairs – cleared rooms of old things, cleaned up, installed beds, wardrobes, and other furniture, brought in heaters because it was cold outside, arranged a toilet and kitchen block, brought in food supplies, and settled the refugees.
