Protecting heritage to build peace
Protecting heritage to build peace

Since the early hours of the conflict in Ukraine, ALIPH has been mobilized to help protect the country's cultural heritage and heritage professionals. The Foundation quickly contacted international heritage organizations and Ukrainian authorities, and through Polish and Moldovan networks, ALIPH approached Ukrainian professionals to assess and respond to the needs from the ground. On March 7, ALIPH adopted its Ukrainian Action Plan, earmarking an initial USD 2 million for projects.

To date, ALIPH has supported more than 50 projects to protect nearly 60 museums, libraries, and archives, by financing the purchase or transport of material, such as wooden boxes, fire extinguishers, and fire blankets, in order to protect collections. ALIPH also funded the upgrade of three art storage facilities and the implementation of a monitoring and analysis system for heritage sites, part of an initiative by University College London. More than USD 1 million has already been committed by ALIPH to support the extraordinary work of the Ukrainian people to protect their heritage.
