58 housing units for Ukrainian BPI

At its meeting on Wednesday, March 2, 2022, the municipal council of the City of Differdange passed a resolution supporting Ukraine with 17 yes and 1 no vote. The City of Differdange thus continues a long tradition of helping people in need – in Luxembourg and around the world.

Key measures

The most important measure of the resolution taken by the City of Differdange is undoubtedly the provision of 45 housing units (studios and apartments) in the former Gulliver Tower hotel-restaurant to accommodate Ukrainian applicants for international protection.

In addition, the City of Differdange is proud to announce that 13 additional units are available from 9 March in the Klenge Casino building on the Place du Marché in the city centre. In all, there are 58 rooms, studios and flats – 45 in the Gulliver Tower and 13 in the Klenge Casino – that can accommodate some 230 refugees. The first two floors of the Gulliver Tower with 22 units will be available from the beginning of this week. In this context, we would like to thank the companies in Differdange who have mobilised themselves in record time to carry out the necessary work to accommodate the refugees.

The City of Differdange will also financially support NGOs active in refugee aid through its initiative Déifferdeng eng Stad hëlleft.

The resolution

Through its resolution of March 2, 2022, the municipal council of the City of Differdange decides:

  • to strongly condemn the Russian military aggression against the territorial integrity and sovereignty of Ukraine in defiance of international law;
  • to firmly oppose the dismemberment of a free and democratic state of Europe;
  • to call on the Russian Federation to stop its attack, to leave the national territory of Ukraine, to respect all international treaties and the fundamental principles of international law and to recognize the full sovereignty of Ukraine over all its territories;
  • to show its solidarity by mobilizing to receive applicants for international protection, and more specifically by offering the National Office of Reception the commercial building of the former Gulliver Tower hotel-restaurant to be assigned in the short or medium term to the accommodation of BPI resulting from the current conflict in Ukraine;
  • to show its solidarity by raising the Ukrainian flag and by illuminating public buildings with the colors of Ukraine;
  • to support financially the NGOs helping the refugees;
  • to be at the disposal of the Luxembourg government to contribute in any way possible to the provision of basic aid to the Ukrainian people;
  • and finally, to support the declaration of February 24, 2022, issued by the Council of European Municipalities and Regions.
