Today we have won a grant from the Committee for Open Democracy on behalf of the City of Goodness Foundation. This has been part of our ongoing effort to support Ukrainian grassroot NGOs with access to foreign aid. The City of Goodness is an international crisis center for women and children in difficult life circumstances. The center provides shelter as well as legal, psychological and social support. Ever since the war started the City of Goodness has experienced a sharp increase in the inflow of refugees.
It has now become a home for over 250 people (against ca 80 prior to war) - women and children, including orphans evacuated from the East of Ukraine after their orphanage was destroyed. This grant is destined for purchase of 1-month worth of basic food items for the people staying at City of Goodness.
