Here’s some info on the minimum pay and the existence minimum in Ukraine.

01.12.2020

From 01.12.2020 on, a family’s existence minimum is 4665.00 Hryvnia (139 Euro), if the family has one child over 6 years old. The sum depends on the children’s ages.

Minimum pay after taxes: 4025.00 Hryvnia (120 Euro).

70% of the money goes toward food. The remaining 30% does not cover rent and heating in winter time.

Each month, the families face a dilemma. What is most important? Food or heating, heating or clothes, etc.

It’s warm at home now

“It used to take me half a day to warm the house. I went to the nearby forest to pick and cut fallen branches.

And now, thanks to you, we have wood and a warm home. We have wood to heat the house for the entire winter. Many thanks for your help.”
