Working as a volunteer is rather hard but complemental work. We are always proud of the people who are self-denying in helping others. It is not a secret that social protection, health services in Ukraine lag behind the ones in Europe or the USA. Therefore, a lot of social programs are in place, especially targeted on working with incurable people, education campaigns on HIV/AIDS and other dangerous illnesses, working with youth. But what is important that such programs are not just exist, but also receive extended funding and support from foreign organizations and religious associations. Furthermore, dozens of people from Europe, the USA come to Ukraine to make personal contribution and join the process personally.
