At the beginning of 2014 Caritas Ukraine launched cooperation with coffee houses network called KREDENS CAFE (LLC “Esset”). Such collaboration is aimed to collect money for organization of summer camps for disabled youth of Caritas Lviv.

At the moment Caritas Ukraine coordinates activity of 6 social centers on work with people who have special needs: in Lviv, Drohobych, Stryi, Ivano-Frankivsk, Kolomyia and Boryslav. Nearly 120 disabled individuals, their parents and relatives are seized with daily care.

Clients of Caritas Ukraine social centers can participate in educational programs on getting work skills (occupational therapy) and basic social skills (self-service, preparing food, behavior in different household communications and situations etc); events on social integration are also being held (meetings with youth from other centers and establishments, organization of leisure, recreation games, participation in Christian pilgrimages, summer camps and excursions, getting involved in festivals and fairs etc).

Parents of disabled individuals receive social and psychological follow-up, information support; they join activities of Caritas centers, trips and camps, and also meet during joint events and seminars.

Yaryna Oliynyk, Head of marketing and PR department in LCC “Esset”, retells: “During the last 1,5 year our network faced many novelties: we opened more coffee houses (now we have 9!), our baristas were claimed as the best in Ukraine at national contests, we made another important step in order to be not only the best coffee place, but a community with social responsibility that lives among needful individuals and is in sympathy with them.

We were really scrupulous in choosing a foundation to cooperate with, and took into account the efficiency of its work and how approximate is foundation philosophy for our employees and visitors. We are satisfied with our choice. Caritas Ukraine implements great service to people in need and we are glad to be a part of this work!”.
