It's hard to imagine when life goes on in bed. We will make feel worthy lonely and immovable elderly when present them bed linen sets – to providing them with basic living conditions. We ask to donate money for buying a textile for sewing sets of bed linen. Lonely elderly will feel joy and care when they get a new set of bed linen. Since 2002 many lonely elderly and disabled people have received medical and social services and cares from specialists by the project "Home Care” of Caritas-Kyiv. Now we are taking care of about 100 people.

Summer will come soon – it's time for rest and positive emotions. During this period of the year, the children have school summer vacations, during which they swim in the sea or sunbathe on the beach, or go with their parents to the mountains. Summer is the time of joy, fun, and picnics, isn't it? And what about at this time to be children who are deprived of parental love, care, and support? Where at this time to go to boys and girls who do not have a large loving family, or in which the family is associated with alcohol, drugs, beatings, insults? Their every day is a solid gray routine. Of course, we try to add color to the life of our wards. We organize sightseeing tours, picnics, sometimes we manage to go to the cinema or theater for a performance.
For every mother, the child's health is most important. But when her child feels a little sick, she immediately rushes to the hospital. Is it possible to treat the child in such conditions? The budget of the state for the purchase of new furniture or appliances is very modest, and what to say there is not always and the medicine is available. Half of the patients who come into the Kolomyia Children's Hospital are children from large families, families in a crisis and low-income families, as well as semi-orphans ones. That is, this is the category of people who do not live in the best conditions. But when such children get into a hospital, the situation is getting even worse.
Homelessness is a big social problem in our country. Losing a home, people also lose the place where they can satisfy the basic needs in food, hygiene and rest. Several years ago our organization founded shelter for the homeless with the aim to give the second chance for a better life for homeless people ready to fight for their lives. Also, every year we arrange a common celebration of Christmas and Easter for the homeless and needy people of our town, to remind them about the better life they deserve. This year we are waiting for 100 people to come to Easter breakfast and ask you to help us to purchase food for preparation of Easter breakfast and making of food kits.
The great Christian holiday of the Resurrection of Christ will come soon. On this day, the family is going to the table, traditionally sanctifying the Easter baskets before it. And it is unlikely that many, gladly adding products to a beautifully decorated basket, think that not all are able to put on the table traditional Easter dishes, and, for many families, even with Easter eggs Easter are a luxury... Caritas-Volyn offers help for the purchase of the most essential food products for the Easter holiday for 25 needy families.
Easter is one of the greatest Ukrainian holidays, which symbolizes the victory of life over death, love of hatred, good over evil. The Resurrection is preceded by the Great Lent, which in the Christian tradition is a period of restoration, when it is necessary to reflect on their actions, to spend this time with a special benefit. Each of us tries to prepare himself for it – to cleanse the soul and body, to pinch your home and prepare Easter baskets for consecration. We are particularly trying to put the best products in the baskets, but some people are a large basket filled with delicious items, and in others, it's just a modest paska and a few krashankies.
Near us are people who, for various reasons, were in difficult life circumstances, which no one has to take care of. Just like these people and families are under care for Caritas-Volyn (social, psychological support, humanitarian assistance). We ask for your help in the preparation of Easter baskets for the 25 needy families (crisis, poor, large, incomplete), in which little children are raised. Most of these families have big debts for utilities, some of them rent houses, they don’t have money for medicines, clothes, shoes and hygiene products, they don’t have money to prepare children for school. Very often these families are not always able to buy even bread for their own children, not to mention meat, dairy products and sweets. But they also want to feel festive joy in the form of a consecrated basket, a common meal. We are all familiar with the joy of the family, which sits down to the Easter breakfast, how happy are children, who carelessly compete, whose krashanka is stronger...
On the eve of the great holiday, we appeal to all people with the request to help put the Easter baskets on the tables of these 25 families that will become the prime minister of good that will illuminate their hard life. The feast of Easter, complemented by your mercy for these families, will be even more magnificent. The Easter basket, which will have paska, eggs, ham, sausage, butter, cheese, horseradish, will be a sign of your attention, kindness and support. Our joint, even small, a contribution can make this joy a reality for those whom nobody else has to worry about, except us - be close to each other, share the light!
We sincerely hope for your help!
Good deeds are always relevant, and especially on the eve of Easter Holidays. Dear our benefactors, assistants, like-minded people, and caring people, we appeal to you for help to conduct an Easter rally for the wards of our project “Home care for displaced persons in Eastern Ukraine” and support the elderly on the eve of the Resurrection Bright Holiday. Most of them were left without family, documents, and houses and were forced to move to the territory of a foreign, but hospitable Kharkov and Kharkov region. Did they want to meet old age in an unfamiliar city and be alone with their troubles?..
We ask all of you who are not indifferent to the plight of a single mother, Nastya, and her infant triplets, to help us acquire a twin crib for the babies. He husband has abandoned her and their three children, and her relatives are not offering any assistance either. The family has been left without any means of support, as no help whatsoever is forthcoming from any relatives. The assistance provided by the government doesn’t even cover the cost of diapers and food, and the babies are in urgent need of cribs which their mother is unable to find the money for. The family is currently being assisted by the Caritas Kyiv Charitable Foundation.
Help us buy reeds (sticks), elbow crutches and walkers to older people. Imagine how tomorrow those who for years have been isolated in 4 walls and have not seen the “white light” will be able to move freely with their housing, go out to buy food, medicines, and medical facilities. These people will not only improve their living conditions but also rehabilitate and recuperate, lose their isolation and feeling rejected by society, find new friends!
Good things are always relevant, and they acquire their peculiarities and charm on the eve of the Christmas and New Year holidays. Dear our benefactors, helpers, like-minded people, and careless people, we turn to you for help for 10 families bringing up children with terrible diseases (cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, oncological diseases, orphan patients).
We ask for your help in the purchase of sweet gifts and books for the celebration of St.Nicholas for children from families which visit "Caritas Kyiv" and cannot provide a holiday gift for the child. The main goal and purpose of the project are to make the holiday of St.Nicholas for the children. Thanks to you, the dream of many children will come true, while smile and joy will shine on their faces. Please, be Saint Mykolai for those who really need it much.
