Ukrainian women released from captivity to receive assistance from the Blessed Martyr Klymentiy Sheptytsky Foundation

This decision was made at a meeting of the Fund’s commission. It concerns 52 Ukrainian women who have returned from captivity as part of prisoner of war exchanges since April of this year. This includes Ukrainian women who arrived home as a result of two September exchanges. The decision on 13 more Kremlin prisoners will be made next week.

Each woman will receive a one-time payment of about 80 thousand UAH to her bank account.

The Blessed Martyr Klymentiy Sheptytsky Foundation provides Ukrainian women with not only financial assistance. It also offers a recreational and rehabilitation trip to Poland and psychological support for women who had to suffer in inhumane conditions in captivity with the enemy. This support is provided in the form of psychological counseling.

A separate program of the Foundation is to support Ukrainian children under the age of 18 who lost both parents or one of them, if they were the one and only caregiver, due to the war. Such children receive monthly financial assistance in the amount of more than UAH 5 thousand per month. The first month of payments is the month when the application for assistance was submitted. Payments continue for the duration of the project, i.e. until the end of December 2022.

The application for assistance is filled out and submitted online on the Foundation’s website https://sheptytskyfund.pl/
