Oslo, the capital of Norway, provides NOK 15 million for children’s rehabilitation in Lviv

The City Council of Oslo, the capital and largest city of Norway, has decided to support the UNBROKEN children’s rehabilitation centre in Lviv and transfer NOK 15 million (EUR 1.3 million) for this purpose. This was announced by Lviv Mayor Andriy Sadovyi.

“After our last visit, the Oslo City Council decided to support the UNBROKEN project. The city will donate NOK 15 million (€1.3 million) for children’s rehabilitation in Lviv. “Many thanks to the Mayor of Oslo, Erik Lae Solberg, for his support and cooperation! This is a great help for our children. Thank you for your concern and desire to help!” said Lviv Mayor Andriy Sadovyi.

The Oslo City Hall also expressed hope that other municipalities and the national government would follow suit and also allocate funds for the UNBROKEN centre in Lviv, which helps people with war trauma. After all, it is Lviv that has become a humanitarian centre for millions of people, including children, fleeing the war.

“I would like to send a friendly invitation to the government: when Oslo gives 15 million, it would be good if the national authorities combined this with equivalent support for the Nansen Programme for Ukraine,” says Oslo Mayor Erik Lae Solberg.

It should be noted that Oslo has recently joined the UNBROKEN Cities network, an association of cities from around the world to support and develop rehabilitation in Ukraine. Oslo has become the eighth member of the community, joining the following cities around the world: Manchester, Liverpool, Lviv, Würzburg, Aarhus, Trento and Cannes.


Since the beginning of the full-scale war, Lviv has become a humanitarian hub through which millions of Ukrainians have fled and are still fleeing the war. In April 2023, the National Rehabilitation Centre UNBROKEN was opened here – a unique place where adults and children affected by Russian aggression receive comprehensive professional medical care. This includes reconstructive surgery, orthopaedics and prosthetics. The injured are not only fitted with prostheses, but they are also manufactured here. The wounded also receive physical, psychological and psychosocial rehabilitation and recovery under the guidance of specialists. All assistance is provided free of charge. Over 18,000 wounded Ukrainians have been treated at the centre since it opened.

The Nansen Support Programme for Ukraine is a Norwegian civilian and military support programme worth NOK 75 billion for the period 2023-2027. The split between civilian and military support is determined annually according to Ukraine’s needs.
