On St. Nicholas Day, volunteers of the Universal Peace Federation handed over humanitarian aid from school #132 of Kyiv to Chornobayivka to the local lyceum as part of the project "Educators of Holosiyevo to educators of Kherson Oblast".
Even though explosions are still heard, life goes on, but everyone goes back to their work.
"We transferred not just cargo, we transferred the warmth of the hearts of Kyiv children and their families," said the volunteers after seeing the reaction of local residents.
"However, we felt that we received more than we gave. We were struck that despite the cruel circumstances, the hearts of the local people burned with kindness and love more than ours."
By helping others, we help ourselves. We are one family whose members do not lose their identity as human being and helping each other.. Everyone's support is important and everyone's contribution is valuable.
A good deed was done by the team of educators of the Holosiiv district, Kyiv city in cooperation with Universal Peace Federation.

It is a well-known fact that during military conflicts much more civilians die than soldiers. The Universal Peace Federation in partnership with the "Skrizhali" charitable foundation and the Borys Grinchenko Kyiv University organized the training "Tactical paramedical aid for civilians". The organizers set the goal of the training to develop the skills of providing unqualified medical first aid. 17 people participated in the training and in 8 hours they mastered the basic skills of providing aid according to the MARCH protocol. Learned how to apply CAT tourniquets in 20 seconds, move the wounded and injured, apply hemostatic bandages. Mastered the technique of restoring the patency of the respiratory tract. The next step is to pass on knowledge and skills to the participants of the Peace School.
On June 19, 2022, Alina F. held a conference on “Addiction”. It was not about the usual alcohol or drug addiction for us, but about social addiction. The addiction that each of us feels because we are a member of society:
— what do those around me think about me;
— will I be praised for a certain action?
— what position I occupy in this group of people.
13 people participated in the conference. Two participants were very active and asked questions even during the presentation.
In general, the speaker herself was active and clearly conveyed her opinion, so it was interesting to listen to her throughout the conference.
Participants had the opportunity to answer their questions about relationships.
Also, Diana K. gave a presentation on "Healthy Habits".
It was interesting to observe not only morning exercises, but also such small habits as washing hands, making the bed, and the habit of running.
During the presentation, Diana asked questions to participants. It activated the process and was interesting.
At the end of the presentation, there was an interesting slide with a call for a challenge – to opt out sugar for three days and share your impressions on your Instagram page, as well as to run and post the results for a week.
For the next three days, the participants who accepted the challenge of not consuming sugar shared how difficult and unusual it was. The conference turned out to be practical.
On December 23, 2021, the New Year's lesson of the “Peace School” took place in the assembly hall of the specialized school 85. Lesson topic: “International law and globalization.” There were 35 participants in the class. The meeting was held in compliance with all norms of quarantine restrictions.
The lesson was opened by Vasyl K., Academician of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, a mini-lecture on “International Law and Globalization.” After the mini-lecture, students from 85 schools divided all participants into two teams and held a debate on the topic: “What is more important is money or ideas.” Participants learned not to argue with each other, but to present arguments and ask questions to each other. After a short break, the teams congratulated each other on the holidays. Everyone received a small gift from the Unification Peace Federation. Unfortunately, due to quarantine restrictions, not all schools were able to join the meeting.
