A children’s hub in a bomb shelter

We helped to create a beautiful space for children which serves not just as a bomb shelter in a school, where classes can continue and children feel secure, but as a creative hub where children enjoy spending time. It is great to see how it has been used since start up in August 2022, as it has also enabled many cultural events for the community.

Sponsoring new beginnings for Angela and the Tyman family

Angela's sister has started her own manicure business, and the Tyman family are safe in Germany. Their father says “We are incredibly grateful to Care in Action sponsors for supporting our family in the toughest months of our life. They gave us hope where we didn’t see even a ray of light.” We can now sponsor new children in Ukraine and help them towards independence.

Helping displaced people start again in Ukraine

Local organisations like Care in Action are leading Ukraine's aid effort, and essential to helping the 7 million displaced people within Ukraine. So every one of the 198 people cared for in our shelters, every mother we help to find a job, every child we help to enrol in a new school in the relative safety of Lviv is significant.

Let’s reopen schools: helping refugees to move out of classrooms

In July we are helping refugees move out of school halls and into our hostels so classrooms can reopen, and Director Jasmine Lehnis-Leitao met some of them in her visit to Lviv. By asking donors to fund another 85 people in hostels, we can meet the essential need for children in Lviv to benefit from teaching, social interaction and routine in school.

Our Creative Hub helps children and parents adapt

We are happy to report that our Creative Hub, opened on June 1st, is serving children and parents who have lost their homes in the war. The child-friendly spaces and range of activities give children who are living in hostels and halls a chance to play, enjoy learning and adjust to life in a new city. These are important steps in rebuilding lives, and parents are making new friends and looking for work.

A month without sunlight before moving to Lviv

One of our hostels is home to 40 people who fled Russian aggression: here families have a safe place to stay in Lviv, along with care and counselling from Care in Action, so they can plan their next steps. We would like to thank Razom for Ukraine for financing 40 places at this hostel since May 2022. In total they have funded 4,360 beds for a night!

Some refugees in our hostel barely escaped the missile strike in Kramatorsk. Many went through heart-breaking experiences to get to safety. Thanks to our donors' generosity, we can provide housing for 125 children and their families who, leaving their entire lives behind, fled their hometowns and villages to find shelter and security.
