The war started by Putin, has brutally entered the lives of the Ukrainian people. We live with the daily bombardment of our cities, many struggling with lack of electricity, water or access to food and shelter. Civilian and military casualties continue to mount and many more are wounded as each day passes. Over 6 million Ukrainians have left their home, their cities, their lives; searching for refuge in transitory and unfamiliar places. However, there is no true safety whilst Putin continues to destroy Ukraine, usurp our freedom, sovereignty and threaten our future.
…And yet, we remain determined: to fight, to bolster our spirits and invincible solidarity as we continue to survive. Together with international support, we will put an end to the Russian invasion and restore peace to our beautiful country. We know we will persevere and win!
The ‘Resilience for Ukraine’ project mobilises mental health professionals and volunteers to provide urgent psychological care and support for all those in need. The devastating consequences of this war have already left indelible marks on so many and will continue to do so, long after the end of this horror. Our team provides evolving resources for developing strategies to make evidence-based psychological methods and support widely available, not only to aid individuals in immediate crisis, but to foster national resilience in a time when every aspect of our health, psychical and mental, comes under attack.
We work already intensively to do everything that is possible right now: provide services, trainings etc. We plan to achieve much more, and for that, we require as much support as you can muster. Any professional collaboration or expertise is truly welcome, as well as any financial donations to help us reach more vulnerable and less accessible groups.
We beseech you, please do what you can, wherever you are: support sanctions against Russia, protest (if you feel safe enough to do so), donate and volunteer. With your help we will end this war and bring peace to beautiful Ukraine!
