The Breath of Life project – helping the military and their families

The war in Ukraine has affected many people... Young men, fathers of the families and sons defend their country from the aggressor. They wait for them at home. But, unfortunately, not all come back home... Thousands of the military were killed. Many are wounded, and there are many of those who will remain incapacitated forever.

In the war, it is not only the body that gets wounded but also the soul. Returning from the war, the military do not know how to live on in peaceful life. Many of them return to the battlefield again failing to find fulfillment either in the family or in professional life... The wives do not understand what is going on with their husbands; the children think that their fathers do not love them any more; the mothers do not know how to communicate with their sons. It is not clear to them why the person they love has become aggressive and uncommunicative, why he cannot sleep normally at night, why he uses alcohol more often. In Ukraine, the statistics of divorces among the military has already increased.

We help the families to overcome the barrier which arose in the family after the men returned from the war. Many of the men suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and we explain to the families what it is and how to deal with it. We work with the families whose members were killed or went missing; we also work with the wounded soldiers in the hospitals.

What our society needs now is victory and recovery. And if we are able to help each particular family, each particular person, then we will surely persevere.
