Description de l'équipe
The Voices of Children Foundation has been helping children affected by the war since 2015. Thanks to you, we provide psychological and psychosocial support to children. It helps them overcome the consequences of armed conflict and develop. Today, during the full-scale Russian invasion of Ukraine, we are providing non-stop assistance to affected children and families from all over the country, providing emergency psychological assistance, and assisting in the evacuation process.
Who we are
We grew up from the volunteer activity of Lena Rozvadovska in the East of Ukraine since 2015. Back then all our efforts were directed to the evacuation and urgent help to the injured from war operations on the frontline.
We helped to create the center of psychological help in Slovyansk as well as organized the treatment and rehabilitation of traumatized children. Besides, we restored the destroyed houses and day by day helped families to struggle against the life difficulties at the forefront.
We develop for the sake of children
Nowadays, we develop the programs which will help children to win the consequences of traumatic war operations. One of them is art-therapy. It especially suits the children who have difficulties in describing their emotions, experience and fears in words. Moreover, it helps to reduce the stress level and cope with anxiety.
To give the children the possibility to speak their mind, we create videos with their participation. The main principle is not to represent them in the role of victims who have to be sympathized with. On the contrary – they are all the winners for us as they resist much more complicated circumstances.
We work close by the frontline
Our under guardianship are our friends. Since the beginning of war operations we have visited all the most dangerous places, have repeatedly been taken under fire and have the experience of front line life. We learn the information at first hand, and we are on friendly terms with children who have spent all their childhood next to the war.
Our team work in various villages and towns along the frontline in Donetsk and Luhansk regions.
