 Organizers of the project: NGO “Universal Peace Federation” Ukraine chapter, Research Institute of Professional supervision, Association” Department of General and Medical Psychology O.O. Bogomolets National Medical University, Department of Psychology, Volyn National University named after Lesya Ukrainka and "National Psychological Association".

Project Summary. The project focuses on psychological help for 100 000 Ukrainians. In the situation of military aggression by the Russian Federation and under the pressure of the humanitarian catastrophe taking place in Ukraine, specialists in clinical psychology, psychoanalysts, crisis psychologists, and University professors joined efforts to help fellow citizens in this difficult time of war. And later on, experts expect that thousands of people will appear with posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and all of them need qualified help.   

How will this solve the problem? We provide the organization of psychological assistance to the civilian population, volunteers, refugees, militiamen of territorial units, children, and adolescents. We respond promptly to requests for help through an extensive network of our professional connections based on professional organizations, public associations, and university environments. We continuously provide free assistance in refugee assistance centers, shelters, our own counseling centers, universities, and dormitories. We provide training in crisis psychology for both professionals and the general public.  We provide supervisory support to working clinical and crisis psychologists who work with victims - civilians and employees of transport, social and communal, and other organizations.

At this time, we need assistance in providing funding for the work of specialists because, unfortunately, so far, funding for psychological help and social support for the disadvantaged in the country has traditionally been highly minimal. Therefore, the private sector should bear the lion's share of organizational and methodological support of this essential work and its direct practical implementation.

The current situation in the world clearly shows the general necessity to search for new approaches to achieving peace and peacemaking initiatives. The conflict in Syria, the constant tension on the Korean Peninsula, military conflicts in Iraq, the tense situation in Iran, the confrontation in the Gaza Strip are just a few examples of the conflicts taking place in the world today.  No one could imagine that after 70 years of peace, Ukraine would be dragged into a military confrontation. There are currently over 40 military conflicts in the world. It is no longer a secret that the UN, which was created with the purpose of contributing to the establishment of peace in the world, is not able to cope on its own with the weight of the problems that our critical world is facing.

Current approaches to resolving conflicts have shown their impossibility in establishing peace and building cooperation and understanding. It is time to rethink the ways and approaches to resolving these issues.

In 2014, with the initiative of the community and with the support of the Universal Peace Federation and the Kiev city center "Rodynnyi Dim" the movement "Children: Ambassadors of Peace" was launched. The purpose of the movement is to educate young people, which in the future will become leaders of civil society, education character of a peacemaker, the formation of internal characteristics of mature individuals who can take responsibility for the establishment of peace in the family, society, country and world.

Taking into consideration the conflict that is taking place in Ukraine, peace is especially important for us. The whole country is united in these difficult times. Volunteers, community activists, politicians, parents, and children — all have joined in these difficult times for the country, all supporting the army and volunteers. Insanely, it is significant and ultimately necessary for our country. We find ourselves in a situation that forces us to think about what peacemaking is and how to achieve lasting peace. To achieve a lasting peace, the idea of war must be rooted in human conscience. 

One of the main features is that the movement "Children: Ambassadors for Peace" was initiated by the children themselves, indicating their great desire to live in peace, which proves that such activity is a valid tool of public diplomacy.

Universal Peace Federation holds conferences, discussion panels to promote effective dialogue between representatives of various organizations, countries, nations, cultures and religions, to spread out idea of peace, tolerance, family values. Such an action allows to consolidate huge peacemaking potential and experience of our country and to integrate it various international peacemaking programs.

Peace – is a hope and aspiration of all humans.
Peace – is not just absence of war, but harmonious cooperation and well-being.  
Peace – is a word equally applied as to family relationships as to relationships between community members as to relationships between various communities beyond race, religion, nationality and culture. Peace brings prosperity and well-being.
Peace – is the essence of all world religions, underlying all morality systems and society ideals.

Universal Peace Federation supports development of sports as means to achieve peace, harmony, mutual understanding and to promote healthy lifestyle.
