How Can you get involved? 

Our thoughts and prayers are with those in Ukraine during this unfathomable season. At this time, we are unable to send individuals or teams into Ukraine and are instead focused on supporting our mission partner, Radooga, in other ways.

Ukraine and its people are very near and dear to our hearts, as this was our very first ministry partnership more than 20 years ago. To learn more about Servant Life's history in Ukraine and how you can help, check out our recent blog post.

Risks of war

The war is stealing childhood from more than 6 million Ukrainian children. They are too familiar with losing their homes, schools, friends and even family members. At their tender age, children witness and become victims of unimaginable atrocities, which leads to emotional and psychological trauma. 

This trauma becomes a heavy burden, which stays with the child for the whole life.

As the war continues, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is becoming the #1 problem in Ukraine.  
 

‍At least 60% of Ukrainians need psychological help, the Ministry of Health of Ukraine says.‍

‍Since the beginning of the war, nearly two thirds of Ukrainian children have been forced from their homes. This is one of the largest human displacement crises in the world today. Children, especially internally displaced children, critically lack psycho-social support both from their parents and peers. Without supervised after school activities, their attention is absorbed by the horrors of the war.

Solution

Since 1994 Radooga Ministries has been serving the children of Ukraine. Since then, they have reached and shaped 23,081 youth. 

 

Healing children’s trauma is much needed as we move further into the war, marked by weariness and PTSD. The only way to deal with trauma is to share pain instead of keeping it inside. Since the beginning of full-scale war in February, 2022, Radooga conducted and partnered with other ministries to hold 100 children's camps, offering social and psychological help to 5000 children, and provided an opportunity for 12,000 children to continue their school education.

Radooga has been running Robotic clubs and camps since the beginning of the war to redirect children’s attention from war trauma and bring emotional healing.
 

To help Ukrainian children affected by war have some form of “normalcy” back in their lives and process painful experiences, we involve them in highly-engaging activities - building and programming robots. This helps children develop their cognitive skills in a fun, creative setting, provides them with a sense of achievement and gives them the opportunity to connect with their peers. Our teachers also help the children draw spiritual lessons and learn Christian values through robotic classes.
