This was stated in an interview with Lenta.UA by entrepreneur and volunteer Igor Stakovichenko.
“Firstly, now my main task – the help of our army, which is fighting the Russians for every inch of Ukrainian land. I have formulated a simple and clear position: in order for us to continue to live here, at home, we must now do everything to win. Secondly, I am a co-founder of the Children to Children charity foundation, which my colleagues and I created five years ago, in 2017. But if earlier we worked exclusively in Ukraine, helping children with disabilities, then since February 24, 2022, the vile attack of the Russians, all our activities have changed dramatically. Now our Foundation is working in a new mode, adapting to the war,” he said.
According to Igor Stakovychenko, the task was complicated by the fact that many of the Foundation’s wards were forced to evacuate to safer cities in Ukraine , Poland, Germany and other countries. “Often the situation was extremely difficult: families with sick children often did not even know the final destination. If now with children who are abroad, everything is much simpler – they are helped by the countries in which they now live, it was quite difficult to maintain communication with families in Ukraine. Nevertheless, now we are in round-the-clock communication with all the wards of the fund in order to support psychologically and financially. As before, we involve children with their parents in raising funds to support families with children with disabilities. The collected funds are used to purchase diapers, medicines, baby food and pay for rehabilitation,” Stakovichenko said.
