Veteran Resilience Training Ukraine

According to the United Nations Human Rights Office (OHCHR) reports, more than 22,000 soldiers have been injured in the prolonged military crisis in Ukraine. Experts have linked untreated war trauma to increases in domestic violence and high levels of alcohol abuse and suicide among Ukrainian war veterans. For those who survived the war, the fight is only beginning.

The lack of adequate psychological support and rehabilitation services in Ukraine make it difficult for many veterans to heal their emotional wounds that leave a deeper scar than any physical injury.

Upon witnessing the veterans struggle to find qualified help and re-entry to civilian life, the Canadian Maple Hope Foundation in collaboration with the International Association of Support for Ukraine (IASU), launched a project that will bring Canadian post-war trauma specialists from the University of British Columbia (UBC) to Ukraine. Our project is based on highly-acclaimed effective Canadian rehabilitation program - Veteran Transition Program.

Our project is called the Ukrainian Veteran Resilience Program, “Я Повернувся”, and it will provide access to expert knowledge and training to increase the resiliency of Ukrainian mental health workers and Veterans.

After one year, our project will rehabilitate 100 veterans, and train 6 Ukrainian psychologists, with our long-term plan being to grow exponentially every year.

Your gift of peace and hope will give the returning war veterans and their families a chance to rebuild their lives.
We only need 400 people to make contributions of $150 or more to make this happen.
