Within the framework of LEAP project that is implemented with the support of the Canadian government, there is a direction of evacuation from the front-line zones to a safer territory of Ukraine. The activity covers Kharkiv, Dnipropetrovsk, Luhansk, Donetsk and Kyiv regions. 10 buses and 2 ambulances are used in the direction to transport people with reduced mobility and seriously ill people. Thus, ADRA Ukraine carried out the evacuation of people of retirement age from Zaporizhzhia to Dnipro, and their further evacuation to western Ukraine. Given the age and health of the passengers, they were evacuated by an ambulance under the supervision of a doctor. In total, since the beginning of the project, more than 5,600 people have already received assistance in this direction.
Work continues in the social and psychological direction of assistance within the framework of ADRA Ukraine project with the support of the German Federal Foreign Office (GFFO). On October 26, a training was held for the children of internally displaced persons, where they learned to be aware of their emotions and change them in one of the shelters in Poltava. The training was designed for children aged 6 to 13 years. The participants created thematic drawings, and then, if necessary, repainted them to transform negative emotions into positive ones. The psychologist held a conversation with each child about the plot of the picture, the chosen colors and the emotions that the authors felt when creating.
