After the decentralization reform, each community became an independent political and economic entity. Since the beginning of the war, every community in Ukraine has been raising funds for the needs of the Armed Forces, organizing charity events, and taking care of the children of fallen heroes who continue to live and study in their small towns and villages.
Ivano-Frankivsk community in the Lviv region has its own sad list of losses in the war. Today, the community is home to 11 children of fallen Ukrainian defenders and two children whose fathers went missing in action. A charity concert was organized for the children in support of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, and philanthropists from the Ukrainian Charitable Foundation Hope UA presented 32 tablets and sweets to the children of Heroes and children with special needs.
Celebrations were held in the village of Vorotsiv to mark the opening of Bohdan Khmelnytsky Street after major repairs, as well as the purchase of a school bus and a police car for the community.
An outpatient clinic of general family medicine was also opened in this ATC. The community is also active in promoting a healthy lifestyle. In Ivano-Frankivsk, there is a community called "Zdorovi" for older people, similar to those in Poland. Ihor Hrynkevych, co-founder of the Hope UA Charitable Foundation, together with the management of PJSC Career Management, also joined in the purchase of bicycles for active residents of the community from the Zdorovi community.
The events were followed by a charity concert "Music for Life" in support of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
