We are a non-governmental organization that has been changing the daily lives of children in hospitals for a long time. Before the war, our goal was to give all the kids the right to education to enable the little ones, who due to terrible diagnoses have to stay in hospitals for months and years, to acquire knowledge and live their childhood to the fullest. Thus the first Superheroes School in the NDSL Okhmatdyt came to life. And there already are 8 schools operating in different cities across the country.
But the war made its adjustments. Schools continue to operate where it is possible and safe. And we have taken on new tasks. For example, supporting the country’s hospitals and providing them with the necessary medication, hygiene products, and food. To do this, we have united our Headquarters and are doing everything possible to get the necessary medication to places where it is needed the most now in a timely manner. We already have several hospitals in Kyiv, Chernihiv, Kharkiv and Zaporizhia under our care.
Whereas we closely work with hospitals, we hear and know firsthand how the war leaves scars not only on children’s bodies but also on their mental health. That’s why we launched a new project – Order of the Phoenix. We have joined the efforts of the state, foreign, and Ukrainian specialists to create a powerful crisis support program for children and parents affected by the atrocities of war. Now we need to train strong psychologists who will be able to effectively help all the children recover from the shock and minimize the risk of psychological trauma in a timely manner. We will not let the war steal a healthy future from our children!
We are strong together, and we head towards the victory together!
