Report of the Happy Child Foundation for 2022

May 25, 2023, 12:00 206 Author: deti.zp.ua www.deti.zp.ua With your support in 2022, we helped children and adults to the amount of almost 1 million dollars

Since the beginning of the russian invasion on February 24, 2022, the task of employees has been to quickly respond to requests and completely change the format of work.

Fortunately, donations from various countries from our long-time partners and friends began to arrive very quickly. The organization Maya's Hope from New York provided us with the greatest help.

We began to collect applications from residents of the occupied communities of the Zaporizhzhia region, and to transfer medicines and products with the help of volunteers across the front line. Also, refugees from war zones, Mariupol, Kherson, and Energodar arrived in Zaporizhzhia. We supported the families both directly (a large line of people gathered near the fund's office every day) and helped centers for IDPs (refugees).

Thousands of families from the most affected regions of Ukraine contacted us through online forms.

From April 2022, active assistance began with the evacuation of families both from the occupied territory and from the frontline regions of Ukraine. in general, during the year we helped evacuate 3,373 people to Europe and Ukraine, and also individually paid for the evacuation of another 120 families.

3396 families received help with food certificates.

1,532 families in the front-line and occupied territories received assistance for the repair of houses damaged by shelling, the purchase of clothes, medicines, and food.

198 children received help for treatment.

9 hospitals received equipment and medicines worth about $ 40 675

In total, the fund's expenses for 2022 amounted about $1 million dollars.

We sincerely thank everyone who helped Ukrainians in the most difficult year in its recent history!
