Ukraine

Ukraine

Ukraine is Europe’s second largest country, and is a land of wide, fertile agricultural plains, with large pockets of heavy industry in the east.

While Ukraine and Russia share common historical origins, the west of the country has close ties with its European neighbours.

Ravaged by war and occupation, Ukraine has taken time to recover since its days of Soviet rule – poverty, alcohol addiction and one of the highest European increase rate of HIV+ infections leaves deep scars. Green shoots of progress are visible.

For a profile on the country we suggest the BBC website on Ukraine.

Our work in Ukraine is in Mukacheve in the West, Kamianske in the East, Makariv (close to Kyiv) and war affected families in eastern Ukraine

Working primarily with orphans our partners are New Beginning in Mukacheve whilst Children’s Heart work with a wide range of beneficiaries in Kamianske, and Love Without Borders is rebuilding and communities in the east. Our newest project is in Makariv where we have a small rehabilitation centre for children living with disabilities plus a long-term development of a new respite and rehabilitation centre on land purchased on the outskirts of the town.

We also have a vital role in caring for, and preventing Abandoned Babies.
