About volunteering organization

Gurtum Charity Foundation is a collective of volunteers—everyday individuals leading ordinary lives until the full-scale invasion reshaped our realities on February 24, 2022. Faced with these challenging times for our country, we recognized the imperative to take action.

Our primary focus lies in the swift reconstruction of damaged buildings. Throughout our active engagement, we've successfully restored a range of infrastructure facilities, encompassing residential buildings, schools, and outpatient clinics. Beyond reconstruction, our initiatives extend to debris clearance, area cleanup, support for local residents, and the organization of diverse community events.

Achievements of Gurtum Charity Foundation:

  • Successfully rebuilt Lyceum #1 in Hostomel, which had suffered extensive damage from Russian artillery fire. Today, the school accommodates 180 students.
  • Established a fairy shelter named "The Hobbit's House" for the children of the school, aiming to minimize stress and negative associations related to danger.

Type of work for volunteers:

  • Entry-level construction tasks
  • General cleaning duties
  • Planning and executing children's events
  • Food preparation
  • Planting and gardening

Camouflage nets are an incredibly crucial form of defence for our soldiers, helping them conceal their equipment and positions from potential threats. Your efforts ensure they can operate without being easily detected, which is vital for their security and mission success.
