USAID HOVERLA partner communities in Poltava Oblast received 6 Starlink systems

The partner communities of the USAID HOVERLA Activity in Poltava Oblast have received Starlink systems to help them provide quality and timely services to community residents even during the emergencies. Starlink systems were delivered to Dykanka, Orzhytsia, Myrhorod, Lubny and Sench communities with the support of the USAID Cybersecurity for Critical Infrastructure in Ukraine Activity.

Thanks to the joint efforts of USAID funded projects, communities will be able to use the equipment in settlements where there are problems with Internet access. Myrhorod community will use the Starlinks to improve services for IDPs, provide administrative and educational services. The equipment will also provide a backup in case communities do not have access to the Internet due to emergencies.

Orzhytsya Village Council thanked USAID projects for the opportunity to get quality Internet access with the provided Starlink satellite network terminal. "The Starlink system will be installed and used by the local council as a backup communication channel for the rapid exchange of information with starostats [local self-government representatives in community settlement], government and non-government agencies and community-based organizations."

The USAID HOVERLA project will continue to work with partners to respond to challenges and support partners in their efforts to improve service delivery to residents.
