THE ART OF REVIVAL open public meeting.

CITIZEN charity foundation invites you to attend THE ART OF REVIVAL open public meeting arranged by KOLESO ZHYTTIA (The Wheel of Life) publishing house to support the foundation. 

We are going to raise the following issues with the representatives of the foundation team, with writers, journalists, philosophers, and military men:

  • What should we learn from the people who have been through the hell of fights at the forefront and/or imprisonment? And how this could be done?
  • How does one overcome fear and become honest with oneself? 
  • What does one need to fully see the true beauty of life unravelling every second? 

Registration is mandatory:

Citizen charity foundation has a goal: to ensure modern prosthetics for the Ukrainian servicemen within the framework of the Cyborgs program. Thus, all participants of the event and simply concerned people have a chance to get involved in the program to help our fighters return to the normal life they used to lead.
