Statement on the anniversary of the full-scale russian invasion

Today it is a year since the start of the russian invasion of Ukraine. The year has been very tragic and difficult for each of us, but, at the same time, this year demonstrated the strength of Ukrainians, and the unity and resilience of civil society organizations. We are very proud of our partners who never stopped working in the most difficult conditions – under rocket attacks, close to the front line, in the conditions of electricity and heating outages – to provide services and support for those who need it the most.

Despite everything, our team, side by side with our reliable partners, continues to work with and for key communities in Ukraine. Thus, we continue ensuring help for most at-risk adolescents and vulnerable youth and launch a new project “Emergency support of HIV and SRHR services for adolescents who use drugs in war and post-war times in Ukraine” under the financial assistance of Expertise France/ L’Initiative.
