The world must not forget Ukraine!

Every episode of ‘The Domino Effect’ covers difficult problems, but the issue in Ukraine is special because it concerns our neighbors. On Tuesday evening in Kiev, Kulczyk Foundation organized a presentation for veterans of the Ukrainian war and widows of those who died in battle. “I cannot imagine a contemporary war in Poland, but it was just recently that you were not able to imagine one in Ukraine! And yet here it is and its tragedy, something which deeply pains me, is that the world constantly demanding new sensations is slowly becoming the everyday,” says Dominika Kulczyk.

“I am honored and privileged to have your trust. To me, Ukraine is something more because it is a place where my father liked to be,” explains Dominika Kulczyk. “From the very start of the dramatic events in your country, Kulczyk Foundation has been trying to provide necessary help. We accompanied Polish rescue forces to the Maidan, we are organizing the transport of medical products for hospitals, we are helping treat children, we held a big media campaign in which thousands of Poles gave their money for food packages going to those most in need – the elderly and children in the war zone – without a second thought. But this is not a topic for this moment, because the most important people are the heroes of the evening.”

After the film, there was a concert by KOZAK SYSTEM, a band supporting Euromaidan, and performances by Numer 482 and Szabla. “I would like everyone who is not indifferent to the fate of the world to watch this movie,” encourages Dominika Kulczyk. The film shows the Kulczyk Foundation helping out the amazing venture of Pizza Veterano, a social enterprise established in Kiev by a veteran to support people like him.
