To assist in the Central Children's Hospital "Okhmatdyt" in Kyiv, we have attracted over 60 volunteers who provided financial assistance for more than 2,000 USD and provided services (mainly social and psychological) for over 700 hours. Given that the salary of a psychologist or a social worker is at least 1 USD per hour, total aid of volunteers is valuable for at least 3 months of work of psychologist.
