On June 14 in Kiev, the Forum "Social Service of UGCC: Current State, Challenges and Prospects" was held. The purpose of the forum was to analyze and summarize the whole experience of social service. It is used for the strategic plan of development of social service in the Church for assistance in different areas: families in crisis, people with disabilities, lonely elderly people, prisoners, homeless, IDPs, children and youth, etc.
To help children has always been a priority of Caritas. Therefore, on June 1, on the International Children's Day, Caritas network organized a holiday for children throughout Ukraine. Children are the most vulnerable in all social upheavals, always in need of support and assistance, especially in the current difficult time. Children's Day is not just fun and games, but also the opportunity to reiterate the necessity of defending the rights of children and parents, to help people in need, to support family values.
