Litokryl

The Litokryl project is an initiative to provide a safe and supportive space for children affected by war in Kharkiv and all over Ukraine. The project aims to promote healing, recovery, and resilience among children who have experienced trauma and displacement due to the ongoing war in Ukraine.
At Litokryl, children engage in various activities, including art therapy, play therapy, group counseling, and educational support. They receive psychological support from qualified professionals who work with them to process their emotions, build coping skills, and develop a sense of belonging and identity.
We currently have two locations where we assist children aged 5 to 16. We held 820 workshops, 60 significant events, 515 meetings with a psychologist, and 15 trips to the de-occupied territories with workshops for children. We have 4,075 visits and 300 regular guests.

The Patronage project by Rescue Now connects donors with elderly people in need, providing them with companionship, resources, and a support system to help them live full and meaningful lives. With the help of our donors, we are able to provide vital food and other essential resources to elderly people who may be suffering from malnutrition and other hardships.

Our team of dedicated volunteers constantly supports around 650 elderly people, whose profiles can be viewed on our website. Donors have the opportunity to choose the person they wish to donate to, and can make a real difference in the lives of these individuals. The program not only provides tangible resources, but also companionship and emotional support, which can have a profound impact on the well-being of elderly people.
At Rescue Now, we believe in the power of community and human connection. Through the Patronage project, we strive to create meaningful relationships between donors and the elderly people they support.

By supporting volunteer organizations that have stepped up to address these challenges, the project helps to ensure that critical needs in the community are being met. Moreover, by developing the capacity of these organizations, the project supports the development and sustainability of c

Rapid Response Project is our first project. It aims to provide immediate and vital assistance to those affected by crises such as war. Our mission is to deliver essential resources to those in need, including food, medicine, medical equipment, survival appliances, seeds, and repair materials to rebuild homes.

The rapid response project is based on many years of experience and knowledge in humanitarian aid, which allows us to respond quickly and effectively to emergencies. We provide evacuation services to those who trust us in times of stress, ensuring their safety and well-being.

We evacuated 1,920 people (739 people in difficulty, 855 pets), found temporary and long-term housing for 620 people, and received and distributed 679 tonnes of humanitarian kits, food, and hot meals to 86,824 people.
