Since 1993, Help Us Help The Children (HUHTC) - a project of Dopomoha Ukraini -Aid Ukraine- together with The New Generation International Charitable Fund has been dedicated to improving the quality of life of children living in orphanages and institutions across Ukraine. Throughout the past 25 years, we have delivered programs and initiatives for children designed to assist them in building a strong foundation,  developing skills and empowering them to successfully reach limitless goals and opportunities.

In June 2018, Ruslana Wrzesnewskyj, President and Founder of  HUHTC will be walking 650km from Kyiv to Vorokhta to raise worldwide awareness and call on the government to reform the orphanage system in Ukraine. Money raised will be directed towards sustaining and expanding HUHTC initiatives.

Our Ongoing Initiatives:

  • Annual Summer Camps (since 1995) - societal and life skills training for orphans, displaced children, and children of fallen soldiers 
  • Annual Winter Camps (since 2004) - societal and life skills training for orphans, displaced children, and children of fallen soldiers
