Recent art-installation "Unseen" in center of Ivano-Frankivsk evoked a lively interest among local citizens and tourists and showed that they know little about human trafficking problem. This initiative tells real stories about real people who live near each of us, but once went for work abroad, being unaware of labor slavery. For many people "Unseen" displayed human trafficking as something allied and of great current interest.
Recently workers and volunteers of Caritas Khmelnytskiy once again visited Yampil special school-orphanage of I-III grades. Local Caritas has been providing assistance to this and other social establishments in oblast for many years, uniting philanthropists, local communities and own beneficiaries: together they render humanitarian aid in form of clothes, shoes, toys, holiday presents and also involve orphanage pupils in creative events and initiatives.
