We are looking forward to welcoming students from Ukraine in the near future. We are rolling up our sleeves to fit out 4 new rooms.

Because of the war in Ukraine I know I can lose my home any minute. I feel at home in the Maison du Portugal and I wish that every Ukrainian student who has lost theirs could find a home. The idea of a virtual Maison d’Ukraine will become a powerful display of solidarity.
Viiktoria, Maison du Portugal-André de Gouveia, Ukrainian
The day the war started, my heart was broken and my life was changed forever. Being able to accommodate Ukrainian students and researchers would save their live and provide them with the safety to resume work and continue contributing to the world of education and science.
Yanina, Maison de l’Île-de-France, Ukrainian
The ideal and utopia represented by the Cité internationale at the end of the Great War still persists when conflicts are renewed and fear is growing everywhere. Despite the troubled and difficult context, the great and beautiful ideas of peace, culture, tolerance and solidarity still live here.
Maxime, Maison des étudiants canadiens, French-Canadian
The best we can do now to help from here is to welcome people in need to the Cité Internationale and give them all our support so that they feel welcome and find the strength to move forward.
Rosario, Maison de l’Argentine, Argentina
The residents of the House of the Canadian Students are therefore honoured to share their living environment with students and researchers fleeing the war in Ukraine. We stand together!
Maria et Jean-François, Maison des étudiants canadiens, Canadian
The idea of a Virtual House of Ukraine seems to me an incredible idea and I would like it to be open to all refugee students and researchers in the world.
Carolina, Fondation de Monaco, Venezuela
This mobilisation shows our attachment to peace and cohesion. These are values that must be defended at all times through concrete actions!
Cornelia, Maison des étudiants suédois, Sweden
A terrible war has knocked on the door of the Ukrainians. I think of my family. My heart bleeds, my soul aches. The House of Ukraine is a warm gesture from the Cité internationale. Thank you for giving a glimmer of hope to our young people. Your support is precious to me.
Nataliia, Fondation Deutsch de la Meurthe, Ukrainian
I lost my home without reason. The idea to create a virtual Ukrainian house is really good and important. It might help lots of Ukrainian people find the ‘‘home’’ in a dialog with compatriots. Also it’ll be a good experience for all of us to exchange our cultural identity.
Myroslava, Fondation Deutsch de la Meurthe, Ukrainian
I live the tragedy from one of the most emblematic places for peace between peoples and nations. I participated in the organisation of a collecting point but we should not forget that it is the people who make the country. The House of Ukraine is a concrete action to contribute to the revival of Ukraine and to spread European values.
Anton, Collège franco-britannique, Ukrainian
