Marathon for good
Before the New Year holidays each Ukrainian could grant a gift for foster families from Donbas, who were forced to become IDPs. Thus, in December 2015 "Restoration Donbas" and "Uspishna Kraina" launched charitable action "Marathon for good".
Carrying out the marathon was aimed to help families, who were not afraid of difficulties due to the war and adopted orphans, took them away from the war. "Restoring Donbass" and the "Uspishna Kraina" were publishing details of the stories of such families with bank details for financial assistance. Activists were providing contact information for those, who wanted personally meet such families and congratulate them with the New Year.
Nowadays, foster families from Donbas have hard life. The objective of our action – was not only to help children to believe in New Year's miracle, but to convince their parents that we (Ukrainians) do not leave them alone with their problems!
