«FAR AWAY FROM HOME»

The Volunteering project connected to the help for the forced-resettled persons (FRP) from the zone of conducting anti-terrorist operations (ATO) by the armed forces of  the Ukraine in Donetsk and Luhansk districts.  From the very beginning the project was framed by the time, but when this time went out, it was clear that the initiative had to be continued. The help to FRP is done at social and cultural levels. The volunteers collect the humanitarian aid, first need necessities, children’s clothes and other things. The necessary means, the volunteers look for inside the community as well as outside of it, addressing the donor organizations, physical  persons, and the entrepreneurs. The main benefactor of all large-scale projects is the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee “Joint”.   Because of the reason that FRP live dispersed over the territory of Khmelnytsky and Ternopil districts, the volunteers deliver aids themselves, making visits to people’s homes. This is an ideal possibility  for the cultural activities.  Many people find themselves in small settlements, where besides them there is no Jewish population. The volunteers are present at the Shabbats, they bring candles, wine and the other necessary things, they talk to people, discussing the Jewish topics, and they help to keep the continuous communications with the Jewish tradition, and Jewish world news.

«DIALOGUE OF GENERATIONS»

«Dialogue of Generations » — it is a long term project, accepted by the Volunteering Center from HBF “Hesed Besht”.  Its main task is in the organization  of the different events for the youth and for the old people in order to share their skills,  knowledge, and wisdom.  About 50 people participate  in this project, 4 of them are the “oldest” volunteers, because they are more than 85 years old. In frames on this project, there are additional lessons for the youth in Physics, Biology, Economics and Math; also they organize their mutual Shabbats at homes of these old people, or they watch the new versions of the old films together. This project helps the old people to struggle with their loneliness, to share their skills and knowledge and to “go together with the time”, but for the teenagers it gives the possibility to be surer in life, using the knowledge of the experienced members of the community.

The volunteers make pleasant gifts to such people. They make this not only to have the pleasant visits to old people, but also the volunteers attend the culinary circle at the Community Center “Thija”, where they are taught to cook the national Jewish recipes.

Cooked dishes are packed in special boxes and are brought to the old people by the volunteers.
