Right to be happy: EU supports project aiming to restore well-being of children and parents suffering from war in Ukraine


The European Union in Ukraine is supporting the ‘Right to Be Happy’ project aimed at restoring the well-being of children and parents who have survived the horrors of war.

The project is implemented by the charitable foundation ‘Centre for Rehabilitation and Re-adaptation of ATO/OS participants and their families/YARMIZ’. 

The NGO conducts special training sessions for Kyiv volunteer specialists and a support programme for teenagers (13-15 years old) and their parents.

According to the EU Delegation to Ukraine, almost one thousand crimes against children have already been recorded in Ukraine during the four months of war. Thousands more children have witnessed Russian aggression.
