Activities

  • Save Ukraine Help Center organised forty canteens throughout Donetsk and Luhansk regions for vulnerable people who have no access to food. Furthermore, the organisation distributes food and non food kits items including clothes, medicine, and hygiene kits for vulnerable people living in conflict areas. Humanitarian aid comes mostly from abroad and is delivered to people in the conflict area.
  • One of the key priorities of Save Ukraine Help Center is to help children. It thus carries out activities including collecting donations, searching for doctors and medical institutions to treat children and to provide them with all they need in terms of physical and emotional health.
  • In order to integrate children into the community in September just before start of the school year, volunteers and missionaries organised an outdoor mobile camp for children which included sport activities and music concerts in the Donetsk region. The most vulnerable children received backpacks bought with donations.
  • International missionaries visit Save Ukraine Help Center to share experiences and give recommendations on how to help people, and thus to help integrate IDPs and help build peace in Donbass.
