voices of children

Voices of Ukraine's vision is to provide psychological and psychosocial support and other humanitarian aid to children who suffered as a result of war operations; help families to cope with everyday difficulties, treatment and rehabilitation of children, providing them with addressed support; and to give children a voice and we are also engaged in promoting children’s rights in order to change the children’s rights protection system in the country [Ukraine].

Co-founder, Olena Rozvadovska, first got involved with children of war when Russian aggression started in 2014. Rozvadovska volunteered much of her time in the Donbas region of southeastern Ukraine giving humanitarian aid to local residents.

“A House Made of Splinters” (available through PBS Passport) was a documentary made by Ukrainian journalist, Azad Safarovm (co-founder). The documentary focused on a shelter for children who hare taken from their parents due to alcohol abuse, physical abuse, or homelessness. In the shelter they wait the decision of court decisions: return home, live with another relative, enter foster care, or be sent to the orphanage. Rozvadovska worked with Safarovm on this documentary which then led to the both of them creating the organization, Voices of Children, in 2019.

Voices of Children's work to provide psychological support to the children of Ukraine who are now victims of war. Some programs they offer are: psychosocial support and rehabilitation for children and families; meeting additional educational and recreational needs of children; children’s rights advocacy; assistance with evacuation and ensuring children’s access to a safe environment in communities; and arrangement of new permanent or temporary housing for IDPs and meeting their basic needs.

"The key task of the Foundation is to help a child maintain control over what is happening in his/her life and not depend on help all the time. Our priority is to provide long-term comprehensive psychological support to a child, fully understand his/her needs and work on the prevention of PTSD or coping with consequences of the war."
