Kramatorsk Volunteer Center

We'll turn off the lights last

We provide psychological, mental, social and humanitarian support to children, youth, adults, military personnel, and everyone who needs it in the war-affected eastern regions of Ukraine.

Center history

We write history in the colors of Help, Goodness and Light!


Kramatorsk Volunteer Center is a non-partisan, non-governmental, non-profit organization that was founded to help citizens affected by the armed conflicts in eastern Ukraine, internally displaced persons and those who have found themselves in difficult life circumstances due to the war.

A team of volunteers in the Kramatorsk center

Since the first days of the full-scale war, we have created a powerful volunteer team that has been helping residents of Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts. Initially, it was only humanitarian aid: water, food, clothing, hygiene products, as well as emergency visits and assistance to the most vulnerable residents of our region.

But now our goal is to restore and rebuild our native land. And working with children and youth is an extremely important task. We understand that children are our future, and we will do everything possible for their full and emotionally healthy development, even in difficult conditions. We do not want them to have only war in their minds.

So we set up a youth center in the heart of Kramatorsk. In the most difficult time for Donetsk region, we stay at home, here, and continue to support people. We do what we have to do.

We are convinced that creative and patriotic activities for children during the war are of particular importance. They help children find inner strength, express feelings and emotions, and nurture love even in difficult times. Classes include art therapy, creative workshops, sand therapy and an art studio. Together with our psychologists, we conduct developmental classes for children with special needs under a special program.

Together with the children, we create an atmosphere of light and joy, the rays of which pierce hearts with love of life and hope for the best.
