“PLAST” organization initiated and raised 100, 000 UAH for children of Heroes in Lviv
100, 000 UAH was raised in Lviv to help children of Heroes (children of fathers who fought and died in the Anti-Terrorist Operation in the Eastern Ukraine) from bracelet selling that were made by “Plast” members (“Plast” in Ukraine is the same as the “Scout” Organization). Children of soldiers were sent to health sanatoriums, received school kits as well as they will celebrate the Easter in Lviv. Raising money is still continuing. 

“Plast” members who are making blue and yellow bracelets have managed to collect 100 thousand UAH since last summer up to today. 

“We collaborate with an organization “Help for Children of Heroes” that was founded after the death of “Heavenly Hundred” (the list of people killed during Euromaidan events taking place in the fall and winter of 2013–2014). Dedicated people decided to help children who lost their fathers on Instytutska Street in Kyiv. Later they decided to support children whose fathers died in the Anti-Terrorist Operation. It’s very symbolic that children of the “Plast” Organization assist other children in this difficult time,” says Roman Kuchkuda, one of coordinators at the “Plast” Organization.

About 90, 000 UAH was transferred to “Help for Children of Heroes” from the raised sum and about 15, 000 UAH was transferred to the fund of Yustynka Hurnyak. Yustynka’s father, Viktor Hurnyak, was a famous Lviv photographer and a “Plast” member who went to the East as a volunteer and died in October last year.
