Currently, our main destination is Vienna, Austria – our local partner is Train of Hope.
Our route is Dnipro – Lviv – Vienna.
We announce the buses on Instagram. To register yourself and family/friends for the bus, please DM us on Instagram and our volunteers will guide you through the registration process.
Buses from Dnipro depart on Mondays, from Lviv – on Tuesdays and Fridays. The schedule is subject to change, so we announce the exact dates on Instagram.
The bus departs from the location where our volunteers are always present. We advise everyone to rather come early than late.
Proof of identity (Passport, ID – Ukrainian passport)
Data should be sent to Mademoiselle Martina team via Instagram. We can only register you with us once we have received your proof of identity. You can enter the bus only with an identification proof.
Children can be registered with a birth certificate. If you have pets, please make sure they have a vet passport. If you do not have their passport, this might be excused at the border, but we cannot guarantee.
Help upon arrival
Our partners in Train of Hope are providing food, hygiene items, baby items, clothing and other necessary items. Until the long-term accommodation is found, Train of Hope serves as a temporary shelter.
Our partners in Train of Hope are consulting and helping with: registration in Austria, health insurance and medical help, applying for financial support, work rights and job search, language courses. They also share the information on the local communities, activities and events.
Within 2-5 days upon arrival, the long-term accommodation is offered by Austrian government. As big cities are already full, most long-term housing options are located in smaller towns and villages.
The accommodation can be: private smaller accommodation (hosted by a family), or a bigger accommodation such as a hotel, hostel or a guest house. Families aren’t separated: an accommodation for the whole family to stay together is provided. The length of the stay at the accommodation provided, depends on the flexibility of the specific accommodation entity.
All accommodation is safe, clean and comfortable.
Next steps in Austria
Once you have the long-term accommodation and have rested well, use the time to research as many opportunities as possible. Connect with other Ukrainian women, get informed, get in touch with the local Ukrainian community, lawyer, Ukrainian church, Ukrainian embassy etc.
We try our best to help you, however we, Mademoiselle Martina, are a private initiative and our possibility to help is limited based on our private resources. We do not offer any legal or location, case specific advice. Our focus is on evacuating women and children from Ukraine, and accommodating them in safety.
