About Us

The Charitable Organization "Medical Aid Committee in Zakarpattia" has been operating since 2000. The scope of our activity includes active participation in the reforming of state institutions for children and adults with disabilities as well as contribution to the civil society development in Ukraine.

Our main principles: Impartiality, Apoliticism, Tolerance, Non-indifference.

In practice, this means that we:

  1. Work to prevent racism and xenophobia through media monitoring and public awareness.
  2. Work in orphanages and help to improve the life situation of children and adults with disabilities (Projects: "Parasolka", "Monitoring", "Vilshany Orphanage Follow-Up and Support").
  3. Help and involve others in assisting refugees, migrants, asylum seekers, and internally displaced persons.
  4. Strongly support all active people in building civil society institutions.

We strive to develop projects in such a way that in the future they exist independently. Our experts establish theoretical, practical instruments, and other documentation. It will be of benefit to anyone involved in the support of socially vulnerable groups of Ukraine's population.
